A Synthesis of Practical Lessons from Value Chain Projects in Conflict Affected Environments

2008 — By Joan C. Parker

Over the last year, at the behest of USAID, 10 organizations captured results and lessons learned from projects that used value chain programming in conflict-affected environments.

The goal of this paper is to extract larger lessons that emerge from these implementing organizations and the programs they developed across 14 value chains in conflict-affected environments. Based on these lessons, the paper strives to articulate the potential of value chain programming in conflict-affected environments, and to highlight “better practice” that leads to greater programmatic success in such difficult contexts.
