Rapid market assessment - Peru

Wooden furniture export market and its potential for growth - in Spanish

Studying the wood furniture value chain’s potential for export-driven inclusive growth in Peru.

Short Description

This research complements the Lab's ongoing action-research in Peru's wood and furniture sector. Through this action-research it developed a hypothesis that one of the main constraints to job quality in the sector could be indirectly linked to limitations in access to international markets. The research seeks to answer the following questions:

1. Is promoting Peru's wooden furniture exports an effective means to generate sustainable and formal jobs in the country?
2. What are the conditions, with what type of support and under what terms can such potential be realized?

This study is a part of a larger action-research study: Action research to improve working conditions in Peru's wood and furniture sector (in spanish).
