Regional Agri-Trade Collaboration Opportunities Making a case for Large Cardamom : A High Value Spice Grown by Smallholder, Women Farmers - Proceedings of the Multi-Stakeholder Consultation (Inglês)

Agriculture in the Eastern Himalayan region - spread across Nepal, Bhutan, India, China, and Myanmar - is typically driven by small subsistence farmers, most of whom are women. Organizing trade and fostering collaboration among all stakeholders in the region, to make way for ease in access to technology, finance, and markets can strengthen respective national economies and boost regional trade and development. Keeping this in mind, the large cardamom (LC) value chain was studied in depth recently and lessons from this exploration can possibly be applied to other high-value commodities of the region. While the study was first launched in New Delhi, India, earlier in 2019, it seemed judicious to bring together key stakeholders for a serious discussion on the challenges, opportunities, and possible future actions to strengthen the LC value chain and its actors. In this direction, in 2017, the Government of Nepal announced its export strategy for LC to give a boost to this sector and the actors involved. Targeted interventions to improve conditions for producers, especially women home-based workers, and to create opportunities for them to improve the product at the farm level can extend the benefits of this strategy. At the consultation, the discussions went much beyond deliberating on study findings to look at concrete and practical steps to address the current challenges, modernize the value chain to improve efficiency, and tap into existing and new markets.
