About the Organization

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) envisions a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty in the region. Despite the region's many successes, it remains home to a large share of the world's poor: 263 million living on less than $1.90 a day and 1.1 billion on less than $3.20 a day.

About the Call for Papers

The Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) is seeking papers on barriers, incentives, and policy options for linking farmers in Asian countries to other markets in the region and globally. Selected papers will be featured during an ADBI conference and considered for inclusion in a special issue of Economic Analysis and Policy, an SSCI journal with a current impact factor of 4.444. Paper topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Market Access Barriers and Solutions

  • Barriers to domestic and international market access
  • Incomplete and complete markets
  • Market modernization, liberalization, and integration
  • Marketing contract and channel options

  • Market competition and power
  • Coordination mechanisms
  • The role of development programs (e.g., government programs, collective action, or farmer organizations) in promoting market access
  • Market access in the post-COVID-19 world

Market Access Impacts

  • Farm economic performance (e.g., revenue, yield, efficiency, production diversity, quality upgrading, and production risks)
  • Marketing performance (e.g., commercialization decisions, marketing efficiency, sales price, sales decision-making, bargaining power, transaction cost reduction, and contractual arrangements)
  • Objective well-being (e.g., livelihoods, consumption, income, food security, nutrition intake, and dietary diversity)
  • Subjective well-being (e.g., happiness, life satisfaction, and loneliness)
  • Women’s empowerment and intra-household decision-making (e.g., labor allocation and migration)
