Rural Industrial Policy and Strengthening Value Chains

image of Rural Industrial Policy and Strengthening Value Chains

This book underscores the need for a rural industrial policy that promotes a structural change based on innovation, greater value added and better employment and living conditions, all in harmony with the environment. The proposal builds on the experience of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in strengthening rural value chains and offers a novel approach to industrial policy and rural development, issues that have traditionally been addressed separately. The book also sets out the value chain methodology developed by ECLAC and presents a comparative analysis of processes to strengthen rural value chains around commodities, agribusiness products and rural tourism.

Methodology for strengthening value chains

This chapter sets forth the methodology used for strengthening value chains in several technical collaboration initiatives with the governments of Central America, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. The methodology is based on previous experiences by ECLAC in South America (Stumpo and Rivas, 2013) and in Central America (Padilla, 2014).
