Value Chain Development
From Advisory services
Careful analysis and selection of value chains helps us identify opportunities for inclusive growth of smallholders. SNV promotes effective dialogue between actors in the value chain (for example, producers, processors and traders). This helps identify constraints and opportunities, brokers pro-poor deals between actors, and facilitates partnerships between the private sector and government institutions.
SNV assumes key roles in value chain development – as a mediator between stakeholders, as a knowledge broker, an advisor, and most often, as a facilitator. Our goal is to strengthen links in value chains, so the systems can sustain themselves. Our approach includes: Effective public policy management, group strengthening, value chain financing, strengthening value chain service providers and market intelligence.
