dc.descriptionWe know that falling international prices and the exploitative practices of buyers and retailers have had a negative impact on the wages and working conditions of workers in developing countries. This short piece discusses an exceptional example of better practice in the cashew nut industry in Mozambique, which demonstrates that collaboration between government, companies, and civil society organisations at the national level can contribute to gender equality and sustainable development. However, in a liberalised, market-oriented environment, an analysis of potentials and constraints across the entire value chain has to inform business in developing countries, if decent wages and working conditions are to be provided. The main challenge is to find ways of strengthening business incentives at all levels for more responsible practice. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
