Abstract

Value-chain collaboration (VCC) aims to increase smallholder productivity and market integration. Higher productivity, better incomes and innovations have been documented, but also exclusionary trends and loss of biological and dietary diversity. New forms of VCC ‘beyond the chain’ hope to tackle this through collaboration with non-chain actors. Drawing on territorially embedded VCC, food sovereignty and landscape governance theories, this article presents a conceptual framework to analyse whether and how inclusive VCC, greater farmer autonomy and sustainable landscapes can be achieved. Key elements of our approach are knowledge of smallholders’ various livelihood trajectories and selective value-chain engagement; multi-stakeholder definition of the sustainability choice space; and smallholder inclusion in adaptive learning and empowerment processes that bring together and integrate different and oft-competing knowledge systems and governance levels. This approach will support further action research in learning platforms in Ghana and South Africa. The article discusses the link with the broader inclusive development debate.

Abstract

La collaboration au sein de la chaîne de valeur (CCV) vise à accroître la productivité des petits exploitants et l’intégration du marché. Une productivité accrue, de meilleurs revenus, et des innovations ont été documentés, ainsi que des tendances d’exclusion et la perte de la diversité biologique et diététique. De nouvelles formes de CCV ‘au-delà de la chaîne’ espèrent régler cela grâce à la collaboration avec les acteurs non-impliqués dans la chaîne de valueur. Cet article d’appuie sur les théories CCV intégrées au territoire, sur la souveraineté alimentaire et sur les théories de gouvernance du paysage afin de présenter un cadre conceptuel pour analyser si et comment une CCV inclusive, une plus grande autonomie des agriculteurs et des paysages durables peuvent être atteints. Les éléments clés de notre approche sont la connaissance des différentes trajectoires de subsistance des petits exploitants et l’engagement dans la chaîne de valeur sélective; la définition de différentes parties prenantes de l’espace de choix de la durabilité; et l’inclusion des petits exploitants dans les processus d’apprentissage adaptatif et d’autonomisation; ces processus rassemblent et intègrent des systèmes de connaissances et des niveaux de gouvernance différents et souvent concurrents. Cette approche permettra de soutenir davantage la recherche-action sur les plateformes d’apprentissage au Ghana et en Afrique du Sud. Cet article examine le lien avec le débat élargi sur le développement plus inclusif.
