Value chains for nutrition

Corinna Hawkes, Marie T. Ruel
2020 conference brief
2011

Value-chain approaches are already used as development strategies to enhance the livelihoods of food producers, but they have, to date, rarely been used explicitly as a tool to achieve nutritional goals, and they have not been sensitive to nutritional concerns. This brief seeks to identify if, why, and how value-chain concepts could and should be applied to enhance the ability of agriculture to improve nutrition.
