Access to markets, sustainable rural livelihoods and food security for low-income urban groups: a study of Farmers’ Markets in Tamil Nadu, South India.

Abstract

This research project describes the organisation and functioning of Farmers’ Markets in three selected locations in Tamil Nadu. It then explores their impact on the livelihoods of the most vulnerable key groups: small and marginal farmers and farming women, low-income urban consumers and vegetable headload vendors. It also examines the role of the institutions involved in the management of the initiative, and formulates recommendations to improve the efficiency and the positive impact of the policy on vulnerable groups.
