Baseline study for the Trade Fair, Live Fair project

This baseline study for the Trade Fair, Live Fair project, fosters more resilient livelihoods for the producers and workers engaged in the production of the products consumed within the EU.

The baseline study will start with a literature review of the European public’s attitude to fair trade and ethical consumption. Then, a mapping of selected EU decision makers’ understanding of and engagement in sustainable consumption and production topics will be completed.

Finally, a review of the Trade Fair Live Fair project set-up will be completed, with recommendations for the project’s M&E system and management, and on how to deepen the impact. The assignment will be performed during August – December 2018.

The Trade Fair Live Fair (TFLF) project is a three-year initiative created by leading Fair Trade and Ethical Fashion movements in Europe. It aims at increasing awareness of sustainable consumption and production in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG12). It is also aligned with the objectives of Climate Action (SDG13), Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG8) and Gender Equality (SDG5).

The assignment was divided into three main tasks:

Performance of a literature review of public attitudes in the EU to fair trade and ethical consumption.

Mapping of selected EU decision makers’ understanding of and engagement in sustainable consumption and production topics.

Review of the Trade Fair Live Fair project set-up along with recommendations for the project's M&E system and management, and on how to deepen the impact.
