July 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is the one of the many topics which moderated panels will debate during the international conference ‘Making the Connection: value chains for transforming smallholder agriculture’ from 6-9 November in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Speakers from the private sector, farmer organisations and others and will consider how to ensure the sustainable inclusion of smallholders in commercial value chains and ways of “scaling up”. Examples of successful inclusion will also be presented.
