Programs: those that address market failures – the constraints that prevent a market system from operating efficiently. These constraints may include skills, technologies, availability of information, market linkages, access to finance, infrastructure, governance or policies. We address market failures in three ways:
Develop capacity: We help individuals and communities acquire skills, share knowledge and apply the technologies needed to build successful farms and businesses.
Strengthen market connections: We coordinate among industry players and connect emerging businesses and farms to capital, networks and suppliers.
Improve the business environment: We encourage self-sustaining economic activity by addressing the policies, information and incentives that help markets function better.
