True pricing method for agri-food products

The Living Income – Impact-specific module for true price assessment contains the key methodological aspects to measure and value the impact of agri-food products and their value chains for the income insufficiency of smallholder farmers and other small entrepreneurs.

This impact-specific module is complemented by six Natural capital modules and four other Social and human capital modules. The other social and human capital modules, developed within this project, are: 1) Occupational health and safety; 2) Animal welfare; 3) Consumer health; 4) Child labour.

These impact-specific modules methodologically follow the Valuation framework for true pricing of agri-food products, which contains the theoretical framework, normative foundations and valuation guidelines, and the Assessment Method for True Pricing of Agri-Food products, which contains modelling guidance and requirements for scoping, data and reporting.

Together, these documents present a method that can be used for true pricing of agri-food products, and potentially other products as well.
