Abstract: This paper reviews the extent to which the Regoverning Markets (RM) programmes’ outputs and activities have contributed directly and indirectly to the wider vision of more secure and enhanced inclusion of small-scale producers and small- and medium-scale entrepreneurs in dynamic modern agrifood value chains. It focuses specifically on domestic and regional agrifood markets within developing and emerging market-economy countries. It was found that the weak framework for dialogue between the public and private sectors, including farmers and their organizations, together with a weak evidence base have hampered the capacity of all actors to accompany effectively the change processes. Whilst acknowledging that there has been country and regional variability in outputs, response and uptake of the Regoverning Markets programme activities, the programme has had a substantial impact in some contexts and contributed significantly to the international, regional and national evidence base and policy process. Specific public and private sector actions have taken place as a direct result of the work of the programme.
