Incorporating Smallholders’ Values into Value Chains through Partnerships

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Inclusion of smallholders in global value chains has been seen as a mechanism to contribute to endogenous economic growth, and simultaneously, to poverty reduction (Helmsing and Vellema 2011). Identifying the actors, their roles and the processes which influence endogenous economic growth has kept academic researchers busy for some time. Their analysis has included the interaction between public and private actors, and the creation of new institutions which enable the organisation of small farmers in high-value export chains (Helmsing 2013).
