To mark World Food Day, IIED, ODI and IDS have launched the first seven of 12 new papers addressing agricultural and rural development debates in sub-Saharan Africa.
These papers shed light on questions as such :
- Will smallholder farmers drive agricultural growth or will such growth side-line these farmers?
- Will ‘farming as a business’ contribute to rural poverty, unemployment and migration, or support the growth of the rural non-farm economy? and
- What about agroecology and food sovereignty?
