Case study

Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the world’s largest producers of raspberries. Oxfam has been implementing a pilot project that explores how poor smallholder farmers – especially women farmers – can benefit by participating in raspberry production. The project has worked to adapt raspberry growing practices in favour of poorer smallholder farmers, and to support the development of stronger and more inclusive farmer organizations. This case study sets out some initial lessons and recommendations arising from the pilot project.

This learning case study is part of a series of eight papers relating to Oxfam's economic justice programme in the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe, with a focus on collective action.
