Better Value Chains to Boost Rural Incomes
October 15, 2012 | Contribution by GRAHAME DIXIE

Grahame Dixie is the Head of the Agribusiness Group, Agricultural and Rural Development at the World Bank

For developing countries, a major focus is raising rural incomes. One way to do this that is increasingly grabbing attention is better linking farmers to markets and strengthening value chains – that  is, the full range of activities that firms and workers undertake to bring a product from its conception to its end use. We spoke with Grahame Dixie, Head of the World Bank's Agribusiness Group in Agriculture and Rural Development. He stressed the importance of getting people to discover how they can improve the efficiency of the value chain, including in the non-farm rural economy, and some marketing training courses that are being piloted.
