Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Reduce, Reuse and Recycling (3Rs) practices in promoting corporate sustainability in business development, alongside with the imported/exported resources, are crucial to support sustainable agribusiness within a specified geographic boundary (i.e., in this special issue, Belt and Road – B&R) in the extended supply chains. It is, therefore, necessary to have an overview of the status, trends, and alternative setting of local and regional resources use. The sustainable agribusiness focuses on different subsets of agribusiness activities within geography and supply chain, such as consumption, production and infrastructure use, which inform different policies and planning solutions in this business industry.

The contributors of this special issue are encouraged to provide examples at different measures to showcase the systems approach, specifically through the lens of 3Rs to shape the impact of interests to the Untied Nation sustainable development goals (SDGs) and to be used to support decisions-making policies. This Special Issue was specifically proposed to include resources versus operational utilization in promoting sustainable agribusiness in B&R green development.
