An introduction to pro-poor value chain development

Value chains for development - Introduction


The pressures of globalization and liberalization are creating exclusive supply chains between preferred business partners, with serious effects on rural producers in developing countries. A targeted effort is needed to include smallholder producers and poorer households in integrated supply chains.

This dossier is about pro-poor value chain development - that is, the furthering of integrated supply chains that enable the poor to obtain a fair share of the returns generated by the chain. The dossier is part and parcel of the portal Value Chains for Development.

What are dossiers?

Dossiers are thematic guides to selected documents, links, and work of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT). They cover sub-themes within the broader scope of a KIT information portal.
