Abstract

This publication reviews the experiences of non-governmental and community-based organizations (NGOs and CBOs, respectively) in agricultural marketing initiatives. Many NGOs target the rural poor, whose ability to access remunerative markets is a critical determinant of incomes and well-being. Evidence on NGO or CBO agricultural marketing interventions in sub-Saharan Africa and, to a lesser extent, other developing regions, is reviewed, concentrating principally on access to domestic markets. The authors highlight examples of best practice, explore the policy implications of those intervention strategies, and signal particular dilemmas or areas where further research is needed.
