This booklet presents you with the outcomes and insights of seven independent impact studies into three of the IDH sector programs. Based on a methodology and plan approved by the Dutch Ministry of Development Cooperation and International Trade, these studies thoroughly investigate the impact of IDH programs in cocoa, cotton and tea and analyse the attribution of IDH.

To sum up a few of the study findings: the source of livelihoods of over 700,000 farmers in cotton, cocoa and tea have signifi cantly improved. The global market share of sustainable products has increased: sustainable tea and cocoa are well on their way to become mainstream and cotton soon will. Cooperation between companies, NGOs, governments and science for sustainable market transformation has been established. Large scale private
investments in sustainability have been generated. In cotton and tea, large scale environmental benefi ts have been achieved.

One thing that those involved in sustainable market transformation have learnt over the past fi ve years is that everything constantly undergoing rapid change. In order to stay effective and efficient, IDH and its partners have to adapt their future strategies and be innovative in their approach. That is why this booklet is not only looking back and analyzing results and achievements, but program per program also explores the way forward to further improve
the impact and e ectiveness of public private partnerships. We hope this will serve as an inspiration for policy makers and executives on how meaningful change can be orchestrated, and investments can be made worthwhile. And we hope to inform professionals on the challenges and best practices for agile but meaningful interventions in the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the complex and global commodity supply chains.

We invite you to be part of this exciting journey towards a more sustainable world!
