Farmers’ Organizations and Sustainable Development Guest Editors:Wanglin Ma (Lincoln University, New Zealand)Marco Marini (University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy)Dil Rahut (Asian Development Bank Institute, Japan)
Farmers’ organizations can support the sustainable development of agricultural sectors and improve the living standard of rural households in many countries. These organizations play multiple roles in increasing productivity, strengthening bargaining power, improving farm management skills, increasing household welfare and livelihoods, and boosting rural development. However, the relationship between farmers’ organizations and sustainable development remains unclear.
In this special issue, we invite high-quality theoretical, empirical and experimental articles that study the impacts, outcomes, and implications of farmers’ organizations. We also invite articles investigating organizational performance, governance, and efficiency. Articles devoted to literature review will also be considered. Although the special issue focuses on Asian countries, articles on other countries are welcome.
Submission deadline: 31 July 2022.
