This report examines levers that offer opportunities for systemic transformation - through cooperation, coordination and integration of actors within and across different levels - in four key dimensions. Multi-stakeholder collaboration for systemic change provides a framework for future progress in commodities.


Systemic change involves working with complexity to help actors glimpse the whole system, and to recognise their place within it and the opportunities to contribute to positive change through collaborative and innovative processes. The recommendations in this report identify preconditions and levers to initiate those processes. Ultimately, systems-level transformation will also require structural changes and broader shifts in mindsets and practice to become a reality. This report therefore represents one element of an ongoing dialogue that the UNDP and its partners are committed to continue with all stakeholders in the sustainable commodities system.
