White revolution in India: what smallholders can do given the right ecosystem

The key objective of this paper is to demonstrate what smallholders can do in the dairy sector given the right ecosystem. India’s story of the “white revolution” is a story that can inspire millions in smallholder economies. It has important lessons in terms of government policies that supported and encouraged institutional innovation, infusion of new technologies all along the value chains, and reducing the risk in marketing of milk by smallholders.
