Guidelines for Value Chain Selection: Integrating economic, environmental, social and institutional criteria

    Description
    As a joint effort between GIZ and the ILO, these guidelines offer a holistic and structured approach to value chain selection. They combine four different dimensions of value chains/sustainable development: economic, environmental, social and institutional. Since the four dimensions are interconnected, overlooking any one of them during value chain selection will affect the next phase of value chain analysis and development. Because currently no comprehensive or systematic approach or methodology exists that combines these four dimensions, these guidelines have been developed to fill the gap.
