Abstract

The findings of this research are based on the results of a project funded by DFID's Crop Post-Harvest Research Progranune between April 1998 and March 1999, with fieldwork taking place in Uganda, Malawi, and Mali. The project was mainly concerned with policy and institutional aspects. It was concluded that holistic approaches are required to improve community access to marketing opportunities in remote areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, but that initiatives needed to be prioritised.
