What is Local Value Chain Development?
World Vision’s Local Value Chain Development (LVCD) project model helps producers increase their incomes by working together in groups to better understand and connect to markets, thereby increasing their profitability. Key components of the LVCD model are:
- Participatory Market Analysis: World Vision works with the community to scope the local economy and identify high-potential products through participatory value chain analysis.
- Producers work collectively: World Vision mobilises and strengthens producer groups to work collectively to purchase inputs, process and market products.
- Producers are empowered with knowledge and skills: World Vision links producer groups to technical and business training and coaching to ensure they have the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to respond to market requirements.
- Links are facilitated: World Vision supports producer groups to access savings and finance, extension and business services and new and existing markets by linking them to market actors and service providers, ensuring long-term self-sufficiency.
