August 19, 2010

Cooperatives for Staple Crop Marketing: Evidence from Ethiopia, Tanguy Bernard, David J. Spielman, Alemayehu Seyoum Taffesse, and Eleni Z. Gabre-Madhin, August 2010

From the paper: Empirical evidence about how RPOs [Rural Producer Organizations] contribute to growth and development in smallholder-based agriculture is required in order to help realize the potential of RPOs. This study meets the need for evidence through an intensive analysis of data from two in-depth surveys conducted in Ethiopia in 2005 and 2006. The analysis aims to identify the conditions under which RPOs engaged in cereal marketing successfully promote smallholder commercialization and to determine how the benefits are distributed.
