About This Book

Agrifood markets are in an unprecedented state of flux, and are generating intense policy debate worldwide. The primary drivers are market liberalisation, a reduced role of the state and shifts into market-driven policy, changes in consumer preferences and purchasing power, rising energy and food prices, climate change and its implications, and the modernisation of food processing and retail itself. This book is based on the work of the Regoverning Markets Programme (2005-2008), an intensive multi-partner collaborative research and policy support programme. The Programme examines the keys to inclusion into agrifood systems under different degrees of restructuring. It works on deepening the research on implications and opportunities for small-scale producers and SMEs. It tries to understand what is the practice in connecting small-scale producers with dynamic markets and brings these findings into the wider policy arena. Overall, the programme provides strategic advice and guidance to the public sector, agrifood chain actors, civil society organisations and development agencies and approaches that can anticipate and manage the impacts of the dynamic changes in local and regional markets. While the program covers nine regions in the world, this book covers only the research done in Southeast Asia.
