Rapid structural changes are occurring in the way agricultural systems are organized, from small-scale family farming to large-scale enterprises. They are various: land holding size, tenure conditions, use of hired labor, reliance on external sources of finance, market integration, etc.
The WAW initiative aims at better documenting and understanding of the dynamics of these structural transformations, their drivers and impacts on sustainable development, in order to support inclusive policy dialogue on the diversity of agricultural production systems.
In addition to encouraging the production of new and innovative case studies and synthesis on this topic, WAW is keen to valorize existing knowledge and papers.
The following pages regroup the last publications and essential reports about agricultural transformation, as well as a literature review realised by WAW Consultants on the typology of agricultural holdings around the world.
