Abstract: This report contains the result of the evaluation of ICCO’s (being ICCO/Kerk in Actie) Local Market Development (LMD) programme in the period 2007-2010, funded by the MFS1 programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The overall objective of the LMD is summarized as “small producers and employees realize a sustainable improvement in their socio-economic position within local markets by increasing their access to markets, increasing their influence in the value chains and improving their competitive edge through differentiation strategies”. The value chain development concept is central to the LMD strategy; which is embedded in the theory of change of the whole fair economic development (FED) programme of ICCO. This theory of change sets the objective of the socio-economic position of disadvantaged communities to improve sustainable by promoting fair, socially and environmentally sustainable and economically viable markets. The FED programme focuses on male and female small producers, workers and self-employed in rural areas.
