Cotton and Food Security

While the relationship between cotton production and food security might not be evident, it definitely exists. Good agricultural practices in cotton farming, such as responsible crop, soil and water management, contribute to resilient livelihoods for producers and are directly linked to the food security challenge of our time. By working together to enhance the sustainability of cotton production, farmers and businesses can contribute not only to a resilient cotton sector, but also to greater food security, both now and in the future.

This brochure aims to give companies in the cotton supply chain (traders, buyers or brands), more thorough understanding of the link between cotton and food security, and presents to them the business case for farmer-company collaboration.
