Areas of Action

Improving Market Access for Farmers

Another key element for stimulating food production is to integrate farmers into value chains, giving them business management tools and access to dynamic markets.

The IDB finances business plans and actions to strengthen producer organizations and increase access to information and training in business management. The IDB also supports technology adoption, compliance with quality requirements and safety, and public-private partnerships to finance priority investments in the development of value chains. It also funds market intelligence and tools to support the development of agri-food exports.

The Bank has been supporting projects to improve market access for farmers in countries including: Argentina, through PROSAP (2004), Bolivia (2009), Colombia (2005), Guyana (2007), Haiti (2006), Jamaica (2010), Peru (2004 and 2009), and Paraguay (2006).
