Strengthening the links between food producers with their input suppliers as well as consumers creates a win-win arrangement for all players in the food supply chain.

Providing access and building connectivity include:

  • constructing rural roads, providing power, and developing market infrastructure, such as rural growth centers
  • facilitating agribusinesses and food trade
  • improving farm and nonfarm employment opportunities
  • small and medium enterprises development
  • creating or improving market information systems, food value chains, and food safety standards
