This paper focuses on the longterm strategies and policies that will enable poor farmers in developing countries to benefit from international trade, thereby contributing to rural poverty reduction and the achievement of the international development targets. The term 'farmer' is used as shorthand for both sedentary producers and pastoralists. The term 'smallscale agriculture' embraces both family based and communal production.
