This publication examines the processes and impact of market restructuring through comparative in-depth empirical case studies in selected Asian countries, namely, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand. These countries represent both a broad geographic coverage and a range of stages of market concentration in the region. The country papers address important questions such as what determines the participation of producers in different channels, what is the impact of farmer participation on incomes and what institutional, technological, economic and other reforms are necessary to enhance their effective participation in the emerging and restructuring markets.The case studies attempt to identify major factors that affect smallholder producersa€™ access to output markets, input markets, e.g. seeds, fertilizers, agrochemicals, technology and services such as credit, extension, insurance. Each case study has tried to analyse one specific innovation and these innovations are specific arrangements built on public policies, business initiatives, collective/group action by small-scale producers, etc. that appear to have played a positive role in supporting greater inclusion. The studies aim to derive models, strategies and policy principles to guide public and private sector players in promoting greater participation of small-scale producers in dynamic markets.This publication examines the processes and impact of market restructuring through comparative in-depth empirical case studies in selected Asian countries, namely, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
