Welcome to the Value Chain Development Wiki

These wiki pages codify good practice in value chain development, drawing from research conducted under the leadership of the USAID Microenterprise Development team by the ACDI/VOCA AMAP BDS consortium and many other contributing organizations, academics and institutions.

Each major path (content area) in the wiki is associated with a color; for example: 1. Key Information for Those New to the Value Chain Approach (and all associated topics) are green.

Tips for Locating Information

  1. Consider what you already know about the value chain approach.
  2. Determine what you would like to know about the value chain approach either right now, or in the future.
  3. Select your path.
    1. Locate the row that matches what you already know.  
    2. Find the column that matches what you would like to know.
    3. Note where the row and column intersect; this is your path. For example, if you already have a basic understanding of value chain concepts but want to know everything, you will begin with the blue topics and proceed to red (this assumes that you already have an understanding of the information covered in the green path).
  4. Navigate to the appropriate path by clicking the path name hyperlinks in the matrix below or by clicking the path name in the table of contents on the right.
