Trade and Markets

Trade and Markets
by adminInvest
International trade and investments are fundamental drivers for economic growth and welfare. Free trade and a level playing field enable companies to optimise their supply chain and improve their access to global markets.

Specialization and interest

Our research focuses on a range of micro- and macro-level topics, including:

  • making market participation more beneficial for smallholders by offering guidance on how to manage risk, build social capital, enable collective action, foster partnerships between smallholders and the private sector through contract farming, and redress missing markets;
  • reforming trade policy to remove barriers to trade and minimize the negative impact of market shocks on countries with vulnerable growing economies;
  • monitoring and analyzing global, regional, and local food price movements to increase farmers’ and countries’ resilience to shocks;
  • designing agricultural policies that achieve domestic goals (for example, smallholder support) while limiting negative externalities for foreign countries and agents;
  • improving access to and efficiency of markets and agricultural value chains so that the food system is capable of providing more nutritious and safe food for the poor, especially women and young children; and;
  • analyzing and identifying ways to optimize investments in infrastructure such as roads, electrification, ICTs, water, sanitation, and education that can help improve access to markets and, as a result, boost incomes, nutrition and health outcomes.
