Agriculture plays an important role in African economies, despite low productivity compared to other continents and lagging participation in global value chains. There is also an unmet domestic demand for processed foods and other agricultural products.

These guidelines assess previous Agricultural Value Chains (AVC) development efforts across Africa, propose policies and strategies for developing AVC pathways, and identify the policy and institutional factors needed for successful implementation.
