This case study demonstrates that with targeted support and favourable policy conditions, resource-poor farmers can increase their productivity and contribute to hunger and poverty reduction goals. Findings indicate that the Government of Rwanda (GoR) has invested in smallholder farming and as a result, agricultural productivity and output has increased in the country. These increases have partially insulated Rwanda from food price spikes in East Africa and led to general food availability increasing in the country.
