This publication provides a summary of the lessons learned, and related policy recommendations, from the case studies undertaken as part of the project "Strengthening linkages between small actors and buyers in the roots and tubers sector in Africa". Although the roots and tubers industry in sub-Saharan Africa has been growing steadily in recent years, a series of challenges - including climate-change related events and lack of access to finance - has prevented many small farmers and small processors from taking advantage of such growth. In order to assess the challenges, the project identified relevant gaps, constraints and opportunities to develop tailored financial products and risk-management strategies for small farmers.
