Mountain Development (ICIMOD) Kathmandu, Nepal, October 2013This publication lays out the findings of action research on six value chain interventions. The action research findings show that value chain interventionsin the high value products and services sector can successfully engage small farmers and producers. The output of the engagement is their improved access to information, skills, technology, markets, policy, and institutional support. The involvement of strong local institutions is central to this process as small farmers are best integrated when they work together under a common goal.
