Do we leave solutions to policy makers and technocrats?
No, we should not leave solutions to just policy makers and technocrats. In the context of agriculture, the most important element of any decision-making process is the farmers and smallholders themselves because they are the ones who experience these challenges first hand and may have a better idea of how to tackle and rectify the problem and arrive at a solution. Often times, farmers' voices are not heard because they are left out of discussions and policy formulations that will directly affect them.
