This event will launch two new reports which provide practical, real-life examples of linking smallholder farmers in Africa to markets, as well as a robust academic review of the challenges faced, lessons learned and path ahead.

Leaping and Learning: Linking Smallholders to Markets

Commissioned by Agriculture for Impact and produced by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), this report is the result of a comprehensive review of existing case studies and academic literature on improving market access in Africa and provides a set of guidance for donors, policymakers and development practitioners to incorporate into future action.  

8 Views for the G8: Business Solutions for African Smallholder Farmers to Address Food Security and Nutrition

A second complementary report, edited by Agriculture for Impact, offers G8 leaders and other decision-makers a set of practical solutions and case studies from eight leading agriculture NGOs on how to connect smallholder farmers in Africa to agricultural value chains – to increase their production and productivity, improve their nutrition and boost their incomes and livelihoods.
