Power, Rights and Inclusive Markets - Public policies that support small-scale agriculture

Marieke Poissonnier, Hielke Van Doorslaer

This briefing note draws on recent Oxfam research to describe specific examples of how policy makers can govern markets and incentivise commercial investment in agriculture that includes small-scale producers. Policy recommendations focus on three key principles: giving small-scale producers, particularly women, power in markets and in politics; protecting basic rights; and supporting inclusive markets.
