beca-ilri-2

WP4 will map the key agri-food value chain pathways for smallholder farmers; identify barriers and opportunities to enhance value chains of selected products, devise strategies to upgrade value chains through the acquisition of technical, institutional, and market know-how; plan for investments, market infrastructure, capacity and agri-business skill development; develop policy and institutional guidelines to upgrade product value chains. These tasks will be carried out through iterative value chain analysis and other data sources collected through surveys and focus group discussions. The main outputs of WP4 will be analytical maps of current market value chain pathways, a comprehensive plan for investments, market infrastructure and agri-business skill development, and a policy brief.
