Where there's a will there's a way: supply management for supporting the prices of tropical export crops

N.B.J. Koning, P. Robbins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The crisis in agricultural commodities is closely linked to issues of poverty and environmental degradation. Dealing with entrenched rural poverty and major impacts from agriculture on ecosystem viability requires a new look at how commodity markets succeed or fail. There is a need for better understanding of how commodity markets work and how policy makers and businesses can intervene to introduce fairness, justice and sustainability into these markets.
