Small Producer Organization (SPO) Development; Strengthening and Resilience

Project

Researchers from KIT Royal Tropical Institute in the Netherlands conducted a qualitative baseline study of 55 small-scale producer organizations (farmer cooperatives) in six countries – Côte d’Ivoire, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico and Peru.

The objective of the research was to provide insights into the conditions, internal and external, that are necessary for small-scale producer organisations to successfully develop, and how Fairtrade can best support and influence those.
