Value Chain Analysis for Resilience in Drylands (VC-ARID): Identification of adaptation options in key sectors

The VC-ARID approach to value chain analysis is innovative in that it considers the specific characteristics of semi-arid systems. This synthesis report focuses on the first of the three steps within the methodology – that of Mapping the value chain. The results and recommendations for Step 2 – Assessing climate risks at each level of the value chain, and Step 3 – Identifying options for adaptation and private sector investment for climate-resilient value chain transformation – will follow in subsequent reports.
