Sustainable growth: commodities and upgrading.


Focusing on coffee, this final project report first defines the background and objectives to the project: 1. to determine the extent to which the variation in the natural product has been accompanied by the growing segmentation of final product markets; 2. if this has occurred, who has gained from this growing segmentation, and 3. can policies be identified which might assist producers to obtain a larger share of these product rents? The methodology, key findings and their dissemination are then outlined.
