This brief draws on recent research by Future Agricultures and examines narratives and strategies for commercialisation. It asks:
-What pathways to commercialisations are open to smallholder producers and how can these be supported?
-What are the livelihood aspirations of young people in rural areas?
-How can farmer organisations be strengthened to assist smallholders to engage in markets and deliver broad-based growth?
