The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

Alternative Livelihoods and Environments: The FCTC Commitments

Under Article 17 of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), Parties agree to promote, as appropriate, economically viable alternatives for tobacco workers, growers and, as the case may be, individual sellers.

Such promotion is to be undertaken by Parties in cooperation with each other and with competent international and regional intergovernmental organizations.

Under Article 18, Parties agree that, in carrying out their obligations under the FCTC, they will have due regard to the protection of the environment and the health of persons in relation to the environment in respect of tobacco cultivation and manufacture within their respective territories.
