  7. Guidelines for Value Chain Selection: Integrating economic, environmental, social and institutional criteria

    24 March 2016

    As a joint effort between GIZ and the ILO, these guidelines offer a holistic and structured approach to value chain selection. They combine four different dimensions of value chains/sustainable development: economic, environmental, social and institutional. Since the four dimensions are interconnected, overlooking any one of them during value chain selection will affect the next phase of value chain analysis and development. Because currently no comprehensive or systematic approach or methodology exists that combines these four dimensions, these guidelines have been developed to fill the gap.

    24 March 2016

New and improved tools for sector selection and value chain analysis have been mainstreamed in this guide as a result of several years of learning from practical experiences in the field. An improved chapter on monitoring and results measurement, based on the DCED Standard, was also included to provide guidance on practical but rigorous methodologies for measuring the impact of projects on employment, combining both job quality and quantity.
