The training builds on the ILO’s experience in Value Chain Development to provide an overview of fundamental frameworks and principles, and focuses on practical skills for the design and implementation of VCD initiatives using a facilitative approach. It covers four main stages of the VCD process: sector selection, market system analysis, pilot intervention design, and implementation, following the scheme below.
By the end of the course, participants will:
- Be able to understand the principles and phases of Value Chain Development for Decent Work (sector selection, market system analysis, intervention design, and implementation)
- Be able to contribute to the design and implementation of market driven value chain development projects using a participatory approach.
- Be familiar with the principles and techniques for market systems facilitation, and appreciate the differences between (and benefits of) facilitation and direct delivery.
