    Effects of Contract Farming on Diets and Nutrition in Ghana

    Contract farming gained importance in many developing countries. Effects of contracting on smallholder farmers' incomes were analyzed in previous studies. In this article, the authors examine the effects of contract farming on dietary diversity and child anthropometrics, using survey data from the palm oil sector in Ghana.

    Integrated Analyses of Policies for Sustainable Rural Economies (CRC 990, phase 3, project C11)

    The Collaborative Research Center EFForTS (Ecological and Socioeconomic Functions of Tropical Lowland Rainforest Transformation Systems, coordinated by the University of Göttingen) aims at providing science-based knowledge on how to protect and enhance the ecological functions of tropical forests and agricultural transformation systems at a landscape scale, while improving human welfare. In the third phase of EFForTS, the GIGA leads the projects B10 on landscape-level assessment of functions and C11 on policies for sustainable rural transformations.
