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


Taking a three-step, innovative, common methodology – called Value Chain Analysis for Resilience in Drylands (VC-ARID) – this synthesis report, in English and French, and accompanying summaries of the methodology used and key findings, identify climate risk, adaptation options and opportunities for private sector development in Kenya, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Pakistan, and Tajikistan – specifically for the livestock and cotton sectors.

The VC-ARID approach to value chain analysis is innovative in that it considers the specific characteristics of semi-arid systems. The synthesis report and summaries are part of PRISE Project 3, which aims to identify opportunities for economic transformation and diversification in the semi-arid lands of PRISE countries, by integrating sectors rooted in semi-arid lands into national economies.
