Steven Prager, Benjamin Schiek, Carlos Gonzalez. (21/12/2018). Understanding Cassava Dynamics in Different Development Contexts. Cali, Colombia: International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).
It is presented the review of cassava dynamics in three sections. First, we illustrate global cassava trends using the IMPACT Model (Robinson et al., 2015) and address some of key findings and challenges associated with the global model of the agricultural sector. Second, we examine the evolution of the cassava trading network over time and the importance of the crop in the carbohydrate market, focusing principally on SE Asia and including North America as a competing producer of related commodities. Finally, given the role of investment in new crop technologies as one potential lever in driving development outcomes, we develop a case study to better understand the relationships between a new cassava technology (i.e., cassava with small granule starch) and the assumptions required to assure adequate return on investment.
