Value Chain Development for Decent Work: How to create employment and improve working conditions in targeted sectors

Second edition

Short Description

The second edition of the Value Chain Development for Decent Work Guide has been reinforced with an emphasis on moving from analysis to action and expanded guidance on design and implementation of value chain development interventions. 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.

The second edition was made possible by the financial support of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), through the Lab programme, and the ILOEnterprises Department.
