PRO-POOR Project

This research project aims to show policy makers that horticulture is an important vehicle for pro-poor growth and development. The focus of governments and development assistance to agriculture in East Africa and in South East Asia should include fruit and vegetables(http://www.growoutofpoverty.nl). This focus should include development of the domestic market, away from the often-dominant attention for export orientation only.
