Proceedings of a joint ITDG-IDS conference, Sept. 1987. This study assesses the choice of technology for small-scale sugar production, and its economic and social viability.The studies demonstrate that with a favourable policy environment small-scale sugar production can take advantage of shortfalls in domestic sugar production by large mills in developing countries to encourage rural investment and generate income and employment in rural areas.  The work will be of interest to those in government in the least developed countries who are responsible for the development of the sugar industry; to industry decision-makers and non-governmental organizations, Appropriate Technology organizations and development banks; to those interested in the technical aspects and to those responsible for social and economic policy formulation.
