Opportunities, Constraints And Innovative Approaches In Small-Scale Agriculture In South Africa Opportunities, Constraints And Innovative Approaches In Small-Scale Agriculture In South Africa

This report contains all the papers and presentations given during an action-dialogue held in August 2014. This action-dialogue on small scale farming was one of a series, and the idea behind this gathering was that all participants should start by telling each other briefly bout their work in projects, in policy development and implementation, or in researching this sector, and then focus on how to change the agricultural system (where it needs to be changed), and how to multiply existing successful projects, instead of constantly trying to reinvent the wheel – since there are plenty of good wheels already in existence in South Africa. The central issue that the participants were asked to focus on was how to change the system in which small-scale farmers function: how to enable the farmers to benefit from what is already being done to improve small-scale farming; and how government can use what has been learnt in these projects to make a difference to small-scale farming on a country-wide scale.
