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.

ValueLinks is an information product intended to be a resource for anyone with responsibilities in studying, planning and implementing value chain development activities.

ValueLinks covers both agricultural and manufacturing products and is applicable across regions and differing degrees of economic development. The value chain development instruments are generic in principle and apply to agricultural and natural resource-based, as well as non-agricultural products.

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"While a bit outdated, it is useful for people just out of college and a few years of experience; it is a good thing to scan to understand the history of value chain approaches.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