Social protection policies aim at reducing socio-economic risks, vulnerability, extreme poverty and deprivation, while agricultural policies for “small holder farmer” focus on improving productivity in crops, fisheries, livestock and improving access to markets. Therefore, both social protection and agricultural areas of policy are important in poverty reduction strategies, but little attention has been paid to the interaction between them and how that influences their design and implementation.

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has done evidence reviews on this subject which clearly indicates that both support the fulfilment of each other’s objectives.
