Value chain promotion is an approach that has gained currency in development cooperation in recent years. It is extremely useful in overcoming the weaknesses of past approaches, such as efforts to strengthen producers without a clear understanding of where their market would be. Value chain development can happen at a territorial level, but often it is useful to address it at a national or even international level.
We have assisted in value chain development in several parts of the world. We have a clear understanding of the complementarities of value chain development and territorial development, and we can help you to structure programmes that combine both elements. We have developed a particular competence in strengthening the quality infrastructure that is needed to sustain the integration of local producers into national and global value chains.
