Opportunities for sustainable, green and inclusive value chains in ACP countries, CTA, 2014

    During 2012, CTA and FAO undertook case studies of eighteen value chains in eleven countries in East, Central and West Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific. The objective of these studies was to identify the factors affecting commercial value chain development in ACP countries, with emphasis on maximising the inclusion of smallholders, on greening of the value chain and on sustainability concerns.

    This publication summarises the findings of the case studies and draws lessons on both the critical success factors for and the constraints on entrepreneurial initiative and commercial viability.
