ValueLinks Training Seminar

07.02.2011 to 11.02.2011


Neptune Beach Resort, Mombasa, Kenya

The objective of this training is to enhance the skills of participants in designing, implementing and monitoring value chain upgrading projects. The know-how covers both technical subjects and facilitation skills working with groups of entrepreneurs, business associations and public institutions.

 There is widespread agreement that economic growth can be a major driver for reducing poverty. The concept of “value chain promotion” has emerged as an important tool for pro-poor economic development; the value chain approach helps development programmes in addressing issues of economic change that are critical to the poor. In the era of globalization, value chain promotion is mainly related to the competitiveness of food production, rural industries and light manufacturing that provide livelihoods for large numbers of people. In most weak economies, business communities need to get much better organized and become more market-oriented. The investment of government and private enterprises has to be coordinated.

Building on these ideas, GTZ (German Technical Co-operation) has developed an action-oriented methodology that compiles the most important tools for value chain promotion called ValueLinks. It provides the framework for a systematic approach to strengthening national and regional competitiveness and includes know-how for development organizations and public agencies active in the field of economic promotion. ValueLinks is organized along the steps in a project cycle and is being used in many countries to guide economic development programmes and enhance the capacity of local institutions.

A number of countries in Africa have benefited from the ValueLinks approach.
