In this paper, the relationship of women’s individual and joint property ownership and the level of women’s input into household decision-making is explored with data from India, Mali, Malawi, and Tanzania. In the three African countries, women with individual landownership have greater input into household decision-making than women whose landownership is joint; both have more input than women who are not landowners.
Indian agriculture was transforming from a cereal-based production system toward high-value crops (HVC) during the 1990s. However, food security concerns resurfaced during the first decade of the 21st century, and the policy environment tilted in favor of cereal-based production systems, especially rice and wheat. This paper revisits an earlier study to evaluate how the policy shift influences the patterns and the sources of agricultural growth in India and assesses their implications for regional priorities for higher, more sustainable, and more inclusive agricultural growth.

The larger objective of this report is to shed light on the context and evolution of agri-food value chains in China’s rural sphere, from the perspective of small farmers and the rural poor. Relevant strategies and policy recommendations are made for development projects supported by governments and donors. Specifically, four objectives are: (i) To examine the changes taking place in the functioning and organization of China’s food systems and to identify challenges for the inclusion of smallholders. (ii) To identify good practices for linking smallholders with markets in China. (iii) To identify how the government and international organizations can facilitate the development of more efficient agri-food value chains in China, with due attention paid to smallholders. (iv) To identify lessons from experience to date in China for development project design and management.
