This presentation, made by T.S. Jayne and Duncan Boughton of Mighigan State University to the USAID Bureau for Food Security, affirms the necessity of focusing on smallholder farmers to achieve broad-based, equitable economic growth. This strategy, they advocate, must be based on increasing assets among smallholder farmers and improving the productivity of those assets.  The presentation concludes with a series of recommendations about the strategies that will best support this process.
