What opportunities are there at farm and local community level to increase the incomes of small-scale farmers? This series of booklets aims to raise awareness and provide decision support information about opportunities for increasing the incomes of small-scale farmers. Each booklet focuses on a farm or non farm enterprise that can be integrated into small farms to increase incomes and enhance livelihoods. <br /> <br /> The booklets are primarily aimed at people and organisations providing advisory, business and technical support to resource-poor small-scale farmers and local communities in low- and middle-income countries. They are also intended for policymakers and programme managers in government and non-governmental organisations. <br /> <br /> The enterprises selected are considered suitable for smallholder farmers in terms of resource requirements, additional costs, exposure to risk and complexity. <br /> <br /> This booklet covers how higher value addition is possible through skins and hides.&nbsp; The booklet describes the market potential of hides and skins and livelihood opportunity.
