Guidelines for policy-makers and service providers: experiences from Kenya, Pakistan and Brazil

Experience has shown that a basic prerequisite for successful mechanization of the agricultural sector requires a well-functioning supply chain. To draw lessons for achieving this goal, the FAO Rural Infrastructure and Agro-Industries Division commissioned three mechanization supply chain case studies. The studies were conducted in Kenya, Pakistan and Brazil, and the information contained in them has been used as the basis for the analysis presented in this Technical Report.
