Report on value chain analysis: The tomato sector in Mafraq Governorate Jordan

This report covers the process and results from the value chain analysis conducted on the tomatoes sector in Mafraq Governorate. The exercise was a part of the ILO project ‘Enhancing access to employment and livelihoods for Jordanian host communities affected by the Syrian refugee crises’ in the northern governorates of Jordan.

The value chain analysis was conducted in a participatory manner and led to the identification of a number of constraints and opportunities for developing the sector.

These are grouped into the following categories:
1) Improve inputs in terms of quality and price,
2) Develop new products and increase production with technological upgrading, 3) Market development,
4) Improve efficiency of value chain,
5) Improve support structures and services for the sector, and
6) Improve the enabling environment.

At the end, the report presents an intervention plan for how to address the issues and provide solutions with a view to increasing employment and livelihood opportunities for host communities in the Mafraq governorate.
