Smallholder farmers in Azerbaijan face many challenges in developing sustainable livelihoods. The Smart Farmers Project adopted a pro-poor approach to developing high-value agricultural value chains for onions and strawberries. The project focused on the formation of producer organizations and the implementation of changes in value chain and production practices in favour of smallholder farmers living in poverty – women and internally displaced people in particular. This case study explores what Oxfam has learned about the ‘markets for the poor’ approach, and about supporting smallholder agriculture in Azerbaijan.
This learning case study is part of a series of eight papers relating to Oxfam's economic justice programme in the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe, with a focus on collective action.
