In the wake of the 2008 food price crisis, the international development community, governments and businesses are looking to developing regions – particularly Africa – to play a key role in ensuring global food security. Yet the sector continues to suffer from underdevelopment, with most agricultural output in the hands of smallholder farmers. With in-depth coverage, analysis and perspectives from leading thinkers, this special report takes a close look at how value chains can be transformed to put smallholder farmers at the heart of development.
