Contract Farming Handbook. A practical guide for linking small-scale producers and buyers through business model innovation

Este recurso aparece en:

This guide has been developed to serve practitioners involved in starting up and managing or supporting the initiation and implementation of contract farming schemes: companies interested to develop networks of small-scale farmers as competent and reliable preferred suppliers; farmers’ organizations interested to service members; sector organizations to develop trade and exchange platforms or codes of conduct for contract farming; and third parties interested to promote CF as innovative business arrangement in a broader development context.

The handbook provides: the conceptual foundations of contract farming and its facilitation as basis for understanding the proposed phases and steps for contract farming development; a process-structure for CF development with three phases (initiate & plan, implement & learn, sustain & grow) and eight steps; a systematic description of the three phases and respective steps in a clearly structured and easy-to-capture format; specific guidance on selected key features of contract farming (e.g. contract terms, pricing mechanisms, causes of conflict and conflict resolution); and for each phase and step, references for literature on the subject.
