Knowledge Note

The United Nation Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) - World Bank knowledge into action note series is a compendium of practical, thematic guidance documents for use by governments, investors, and other stakeholders in the implementation of responsible agricultural investment principles. This document provides background to the knowledge into action note series and the underlying research; it also explains the logic, structure, and sequence of the notes, and suggests some guidance for their use.On the basis of the evidence, international commitments and agreements, and international best practice, the notes offer practical, context-specific advice and guidance to governments and investors on the implementation of responsible agricultural investment principles and values. Notes primarily address decision making by governments or investors, or both. They are also of value to other stakeholders, such as civil society, communities, and partner country governments.

Users of the notes are encouraged to consider a combination of guidance documents, tools, and sources suitable to their context and circumstances. There is no “one size fits all” recipe for the operationalization of responsible agricultural investment.
