From survival and subsistence to thriving, dignified lives
Description: The Enhancing Community Resilience Programme (ECRP) in Malawi has worked to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of around 420,000 people across parts of Malawi the hardest hit by climate change. ECRP has enabled vulnerable households to move beyond survival and subsistence, to enjoy thriving and dignified lives. This means enough food and a steady income, safe conditions, and the resources and confidence to embrace new opportunities and manage risks that threaten them. The programme has been funded by UK aid, Irish Aid and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, receiving more than £15m over almost six years until 2017.

Agricultural Trade, Food Security, and the Forgotten Smallholder Farmer
Description: Smallholder farmers are key actors in the global food system, producing roughly 80 percent of the food consumed in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Yet, the voices of smallholders are often neglected by policy makers when trade deals are negotiated or regulations established. Increasing the participation of smallholder farmers in agricultural trade has the potential to boost livelihoods, improve food security, and fuel economic growth. Within an international trade regime marked by ever-more-stringent quality and safety standards, sophisticated value-chains, and byzantine contracts, the challenge of linking smallholders to markets is no simple task. Considering the increasing importance of agricultural trade to food security, it is also not a task that we can afford to ignore. What is the role of smallholder farmers in the global exchange of agricultural goods? What barriers do trade regulations and standards impose for smallholders to access local, regional, and global markets? How can we build an enabling environment for trade in which smallholders can participate more fully?
