Small scale, big impact

A briefing paper on smallholder agriculture’s contribution to better nutrition

2013 Available in English

This policy briefing by the UK Hunger Alliance suggests that smallholder agricultural development that is environmentally sustainable can dramatically reduce poverty and hunger.

It recommends that to maximise impact, investments should empower small-scale women farmers, promote small-scale farming, livestock and fish-rearing, and complement agricultural programmes with education and nutrition communication, health services, safe water and sanitation.
