Nexus framework for biodiversity-relevant transformative change

BIOTRAILS’s main mission is to generate knowledge and develop tools that will inspire and accelerate biodiversity-relevant transformative change in our society, using Participatory Systems Dynamics Modelling (PSDM) to take into account the complex interrelations between the indirect drivers of change in four value chains of traded products (cocoa produced in Peru; aquaculture products supplied by the Mediterranean basin; gold mining in Ghana, and forest-based cultural products created by indigenous communities in the Brazilian Amazon), and in an integrated manner alongside the climate and social justice agendas.

Based on this knowledge and tools, BIOTRAILS brings together stakeholders across different stages of product/material global value chains to collaboratively design pathways that can lead to a sustainable future, proposing interventions in policy, urban consumption patterns and corporate policies.
