ACDI/VOCA uses a value chain approach to increase incomes by improving the productivity and competitiveness of industries and ensuring that firms of all sizes benefit from participation. Identifying growth opportunities and alleviating critical growth constraints along value chains helps to increase the incomes of enterprises and farmers, develop relationships between firms, and promote more efficient business practices and higher profits for industries.
ACDI/VOCA has developed a set of tools for applying the value chain approach to economic growth with poverty reduction. ACDI/VOCA offers a broad range of services at all stages of the project cycle, including strategic planning, value chain analysis, project design, implementation and impact assessment. We offer participatory training courses on value chain analysis to donors, project implementers and private sector business owners.
