To ask Her Majesty’s Government, with reference to the recent Bilateral Aid Review, how they intend to use UK aid to enable smallholder farmers to connect to local, regional and global markets.

Increasing the inclusion of smallholder farmers in markets and improving their incomes sustainably are key objectives of DFID’s Agricultural Policy.
DFID will deliver this by improving smallholder capacity, productivity and access to local, regional and global markets and by strengthening the markets and businesses that trade with smallholders.
For example, our work with AgDevCo is improving smallholder incomes and market access, benefiting 1.7 million people in smallholder families by 2019.
