Workshop on linking farmers to markets in East Africa
Leaping and Learning: Strategies for Taking Agricultural Successes to Scale in Sub-Saharan Africa
Nairobi, Wednesday 11 July 2012
11 July 2012


How best can small-scale family farms in Africa be linked to markets, get access to inputs, finance and know-how to stimulate agricultural growth and reduce poverty? How can this be done both effectively and equitably? How can successes be scaled up and replicated?

Central questions for agricultural and rural development in Africa, these form the focus of 'Leaping and Learning: Strategies for Taking Agricultural Successes to Scale' being carried out by the Agriculture for Impact team based at Imperial College London working together with the Overseas Development Institute.

In partnership with the Food Agriculture Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network [FANRPAN], we'd like to invite you to a one-day workshop to compare experiences of linking farmers to markets, to be held on Wednesday 11 July in Nairobi (venue to be confirmed) from 09:00 to 17:30.

For those travelling from outside Nairobi, we may be able cover your travel and accommodation - some funding is available, please ask.

During the day provisional results of a comparative analysis of cases of linking small farmers to markets, drawing on the wealth of practical experience seen in the field, will be presented. The aim will then be to compare these to the insights of participants, most of whom will be working actively in the region on linking small farmers to markets.
