Linking social protection and support to small farmer development in the context of food security

17-18 January 2008
FAO Headquarters, Rome

The workshop was organised into three sessions. The concept paper and the three country case studies – Malawi, Ethiopia, Ghana – were presented and discussed in the first session. The second session consisted of four panel discussions around topics arising from these project outputs – synergies and conflicts, appropriate mix of instruments, challenges of targeting, and the institutional and political context. The concluding session identified major themes emerging from the workshop, future directions for research, and next steps.
