INTRODUCTION

Value chains are a key framework for understanding how products move from the producers to the customers. The value chain perspective provides an important means to understand the business to business relationships, mechanisms for increasing efficiency, and ways to enable businesses to increase productivity and add value.

It provides a reference point for improvements in services and the business environment. It is a vehicle for pro-poor initiatives and for linking small businesses with the market. Value chains therefore reside at the core of high-impact and sustainable initiatives focused on improving productivity, competitiveness, entrepreneurship, and SME growth.
