Agriculture markets are not working for the smallholder farmer, there is need to:
• Create a level playing field by supporting equitable participation and benefits by all value chain actors (i.e., marketing of products taken over by middle man).
• Generate evidence to advocate for a policy environment conducive for smallholder farmers (e.g. (i) impact of export ban on agricultural commodities by government, (ii) increasing taxes, levies and production costs, and (iii) low inter-regional trade).
