Rethinking Food Markets

Cross value chain services

Innovations and policy design for development of cross-value chain services to leverage new employment and income opportunities

This area of work focuses on understanding how emerging innovations in cross-value chain services can be designed to increase employment and income opportunities within the agrifood sector, particularly among women and youth. Although digital services are essential for increasing the efficiency of value chains, they are often not accessible or relevant to smallholders and agrifood SMEs. Reseachers are assessing and testing the potential for digital innovations in delivering finance and logistic services through inclusive business models, in order to generate better income and employment for these value chain actors.
