Afghanistan Value Chains-High Value Crops (AVC-HVC) defines a partnership as a relationship between the project and a private sector company “anchor firm” or an institution based on shared value and purpose.
AVC-HVC has created this partner engagement strategy, based on other USAID Market Systems projects implemented by DAI, and adapted to the country context in order to provide an agreed and standard framework for engagement with partners.
Each section is accompanied by detailed instructions, tools, and flow charts to guide the AVC-HVC team. It contains information on the design, award, management, monitoring, and close out of engagements to eligible partners. It also provides standard formats and documentation that will form the basis of each agreement.
