Value Chain Development (VCD)

ILO's Value Chain Development work focuses on the subsectors that are most relevant for job creation and job quality improvement.The ILO aims at addressing systems and institutions that can drive competitiveness and job creation in specific sectors by using a market development approach.
The ILO's interventions build on private sector development strategies that seek to strengthen enterprises, business relationships & services, market structures, and the business environment so that they channel more benefits to the poor and create more and better jobs effectively.

Relying on ILO's strong knowledge background in developing business service markets and its tools to improve the business environment as well as drawing from best practice conceptual thinking and participatory methodologies, ILO's Value Chain Development methodologies are state of the art tools for job creation.

This website provides access to key ILO publications and practical guides for value chain development.
