Smallholders and the Non-Farm Transition in Latin America explores the drivers of agricultural displacement in Latin America and argues that government support is essential to help small farmers gain the skills, financial capital, and opportunities needed to transition to a profitable alternative in the non-farm sector. Smallholders and the Non-Farm Transition in Latin America explores the drivers of agricultural displacement in Latin America and concludes that government and non-profit support is essential to help small farmers transition to a profitable alternative in the non-farm sector. Due to such factors as limits in arable land, globalization, increased mechanization, and rising land consolidation, agricultural displacement is occurring rapidly and has led to an increase in urbanization and non-farm diversification. This book reviews existing literature and case studies on the non-farm transition as well as public and private initiatives that have provided much needed support. By helping small farmers build non-farm skills and knowledge, facilitating profitable land transactions, and fostering a business environment that supports rural job creation, governments can ensure that small farmers are not only able to transition to non-farm employment, but that they are able to do so in a way that maximizes rural welfare
