The Integration of Smallholders in Agricultural Value Chain Activities and Food Security: Evidence from Rural Tanzania

Using primary household data from Kilosa and Chamwino districts in rural Tanzania, the researchers examined the nature and extent of smallholder participation in traditional agricultural value chain (AVC) activities and their associated welfare effects, focusing primarily on household food security. Findings highlight the importance of promoting policies that enable effective vertical and horizontal integration of smallholder farmers into traditional AVC activities for enhanced food security and improved livelihoods.
