Smallholder farmers and organic agriculture in South Africa
The SI was asked to provide a desktop review on the status of smallholder farmers within the organic sector in South Africa. This consisted of sourcing, analysing and reviewing existing academic and grey literature on the organic sector in South Africa, as well as the role of and impact on smallholder farmers. The report was peer reviewed by three academics, and the SI team then participated in a seminar in Johannesburg where they presented the findings.
