In June 2010 SNV, together with IFAD, organised a conference on ‘brokering knowledge for upscaling best practices in Inclusive Markets Access in East & Southern Africa’, which brought together over 70 participants from 11 African countries from donor, public and private sector to share experiences. This report summarizes the main issues discussed during the conference, of which the main focus was seeking to bring about systemic change for larger-scale sustainable inclusive markets with a wider significance.
The document is a synthesis of a workshop on Gum production and marketing in South Sudan. SNV was one of the partners organising the workshop. The document includes summaries of the presentations and workshops held, as well as key actions and recommendations.
