Leaping & Learning: Linking Smallholders to Markets in Africa



Join us for the launch of two Leaping and Learning reports on linking African smallholders to markets.

Today marks the launch of two new Leaping and Learning reports.  First, “Leaping and Learning: Linking Smallholders to Markets' written in conjuction with the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), is a comprehensive review of the existing literature on smallholder-centred market-based interventions.

Secondly, a briefing paper which was edited by Agriculture for Impact, 8 Views for the G8: Business Solutions for African Smallholder farmers to Address Food Security and Undernutrition”, asks eight leading development practitioners to reflect on their work linking African farmers to markets and their recommendations for future action and support.
