Assessing food value chain pathways, linkages and impacts for better nutrition of vulnerable groups

This article offers insights into assessing the effectiveness of post farm-gate agri-food value chains at improving the nutrition intake of vulnerable groups. It develops a conceptual framework integrating the value chain concepts with agriculture and nutrition, and identifies key outcomes and requirements for value chains to be successful at delivering substantive and sustained consumption of nutrientdense foods by poor households. Other frameworks linking value chains with nutrition have been published,
but this article provides the analytical lens to assess post-farm-gate value chains.
