Markets and Private Sector
Development programmes and projects aim to address the many challenges faced by smallholder farmers and producers. These range from having access to good inputs, strengthening the delivery of business and financial services, facilitating access to markets, and providing timely market information to strengthen the negotiating and bargaining power of smallholder producers. Today, increasingly this is possible through a public-private partnership. The various sessions will showcase examples of:
- innovative public-private partnerships discuss innovative approaches to target nomadic communities
- developing a value-based market for smallholder producers
- different value-chain approaches
