The goal of the project is to provide information for EU investment strategies and policy dialogue in developing countries. The study examines value chains from the economic, environmental and social perspective.


For each VC analysis, an interdisciplinary team of people will work in an integrated way and with a collaborative participatory mind-set, mixing international and national expertise.


Each VCA will reply to the following framing questions: 1) what is the contribution of the VC to sustainable economic growth 2) is this economic growth inclusive? 3) is the VC socially sustainable? 4) is the VC environmentally sustainable?
