Value chain development is a process through which governments, private companies or development agencies seek to promote the transition of the economy to greener and more inclusive industries.

The second volume of ValueLinks (see here for volume 1) deals with concrete fields of change in which the development of a value chain becomes manifest.

ValueLinks distinguishes six major fields of change:

  • business models
  • business linkages
  • services
  • value chain financing
  • quality and standards
  • policy instruments 

What practitioners say about the tool

"While a bit outdated, it is useful for people just out of college and a few years of experience; it is a good thing to scan to understand the history of value chain approaches. Like a college textbook to keep for newbies/interns."
