The Living Income Community of Practice is an international working group who jointly works towards a decent standard of living for smallholder farmers in global supply chains. During its annual workshop, co-hosted by GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit), around 100 participants discussed progress, remaining challenges and the next steps in implementing a living income in global supply chains.

The Living Income Community of Practice was initiated in 2015 by the GIZ Programme Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains, ISEAL Alliance, the rooftop organisation of sustainability standards, and the Sustainable Food Lab, a US-based think-tank.

Today, the working group is composed of more than 300 subscribers from a diverse set of stakeholders. They include standard-setting organisations such as Fairtrade and the Rainforest Alliance, non-profit organisations like the Voice Network and Oxfam as well as private companies, including Mars, Cargill and IKEA. Government representatives of consumer and producer countries as well as research institutes and consultancy services are further members of the Living Income Community of Practice.

Among this diverse group of actors, the Living Income Community of Practice fosters exchange and collaboration on two major fields of action.

One set of activities focuses on promoting guidance and alignment on methodologies for calculating living income benchmarks, actual household income and the income gaps.
