Abstract: Restructured national and regional markets are displacing traditional food markets. Rapid changes in the structure and governance of national and regional agrifood markets has caused disproportionate attention to be paid to export markets, despite the far greater importance of domestic markets for most small-scale farmers. Land distribution is one key policy area for inclusion of small producers in changing markets. As well, small farmers’ competitive position can be addressed through promotion of wholesale markets and collective marketing. Policy efforts regarding market access should focus on asset-poor farmers. Much of the richness of this research lies in diverse individual country studies (see Project Outputs section).
