Gocsik, Eva; Sopov, Monika


This quick scan, commissioned by the Farmer Income Lab, is part of a wider researcheffort looking at, “What are the most effective actions that lead buyers can take to enable smallholderfarmers in global supply chains to meaningfully increase their incomes?”. The quick scan provides anoverview of the publicly available evidence on the impact of pricing arrangements have had on raisingfarmer income. Such subsidies have had little positive effect on farmer income, are not notablybeneficial for women nor is this effect long-term. They have been applied at large scale. This quickscan is part of a series of 16, contributing to a synthesis report “What Works to Raise Farmer’sIncome: a Landscape Review”.
