Policy Note on Agricultural Cooperatives in Africa

More than 50% of the agricultural commodities produced in developed countries are marketed through cooperative organizations.

Farmer Organizations and Agricultural Cooperatives are also widespread in Africa, but their market shares remain negligible throughout this continent (less than 5% on average).

Why are farmer organizations and agricultural cooperatives failing to become viable agro-enterprises in Africa?

This policy note, jointly produced by CIAT, the University of Missouri and OCDC, under the “Enhancing Development through Cooperatives (EDC)” project, bridges agribusiness theory and empirical development research to offer new insights and solutions to public/private decision-makers promoting smallholder entrepreneurship in Africa.
