4th eDialogue on transition pathways and strategies

‘Transition Pathways and Strategies’, was the fourth part of the eDialogue series: ‘What Future for Small-Scale Farming?’ on Tuesday, November 10, 12:00 – 13:30 UTC/GMT

Transition pathways and strategies for small-scale farming households was explored in this session, with a particular focus on the role and intersection of commercialisation, food production for self-consumption and social protection.  The diversity of small-scale farming, and the need for different combinations of strategies to help tackle the economic challenges and poor nutrition still faced by many of these farming households, was also highlighted

This fourth e-dialogue follows from the previous session on ‘Regional Perspectives’ held on October 21 and 22, which involved Agricultural Policy Research in Africa (APRA) researchers and other experts (see below for a summary of the session on African perspectives).
