Abstract: The fascination for globalizing agricultural markets dominates the development agenda. In many developing countries however, domestic markets are growing, and offer significantly more potential than export-oriented chains, in terms of their contributions to the local economy, food security and poverty alleviation. This Policy Brief argues for an increased focus on domestic market development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
