Barriers to market entry, poor livestock producers and public policy

The main aim of this study is to provide an analytical framework for the assessment of barriers to market access for poor livestock producers that can be used for the development of public policy that works to the advantage of those poor producers that attempt to enter specific product markets.

The paper proceeds to demonstrate that barriers to market entry are closely related to public policy and supply chain governance and presents an approach to examine such barriers, focusing on the critical factors that interact with market access for poor livestock producers. To conclude, the authors introduce a computer-based tool (Livestock Market Assessment Tool) developed for assessing barriers to market access, based on evaluation of the system as a whole and using the concepts used in supply chain analysis.
