Produced by the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) programme, the Toolkit for value chain analysis and market development integrating climate resilience and gender responsiveness aims to help countries in selecting and analyzing value chains for opportunities to improve climate change resilience and reduce gender inequalities.
Key strengths of the value chain approach include assisting in adaptation planning, analysis of vulnerabilities and hotspots across a value chain, assessing risks at each node, identifying new market opportunities to help communities adapt, and suggesting partnerships in which there is mutual benefit from the implementation of the strategies.
This toolkit provides policy makers, planners, project developers, technical advisors and implementers at local, regional or national level, with good practices of climate-resilient and gender-responsive value chain development. It will be of interest to those working on the Poverty-Environment Action technical assistance project, Economic empowerment of women through the adoption of climate-resilient agricultural practices.
The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag) is a multi-year initiative of FAO and UNDP funded by Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) through its International Climate Initiative (ICI).
