Abstract: SNV Zimbabwe took the initiative to found the Market Linkage Working Group (MLWG) in partnership with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). The MLWG was established in June 2008 and is acting as a Multi Stakeholder Platform (MSP). Main objective of the Group is to contribute to rural and urban food security and farmer income by bridging the mismatch between smallholder producers and markets through ‘linking, learning and lobbying’.In order to accomplish market linkages, The MLWG is governed by a Board with farmer representatives, private sector players, government, donors, FAO and NGOs. SNV is facilitating the MLWG. This report discusses the SNV intervention.
