Fresh Perspectives 3: Impact of EurepGAP on small-scale producers in Zambia
January 7, 2007 |
Much of the evidence for problems with EurepGAP is anecdotal, for this reason the decision was made to conduct a detailed cost-benefit analysis of EurepGAP implementation by small-scale growers in Kenya, Uganda and Zambia. The Zambia study, summarised in this issue of Fresh Perspective was conducted by NRI and IIED working in collaboration with the NRDC-ZEGA Training Trust (NZTT). The overall objective was to identify, quantify and assess the range of costs and benefits associated with compliance with the EurepGAP standard in order to design policies for donors and standards-setters that are pro-poor and sustainable.
