Value Chain Development is a methodology which has 2 phases:
Value Chain Analysis Phase : the analysis of the sector incorporating all the stakeholders in it
- Value Chain Development phase: working towards identified areas and implementing the actions to improve the sector’s efficiency.
Value Chain Development for Green Jobs is a process initiated by International Labour Organization for identifying the efficiency in the sector. It also identifies the points in the value chain where new jobs can be created and efficiency of the sector can be enhanced.
Uniqueness of the program can be seen in terms of its approach and involvement of all the direct and indirect stakeholders. Also, availability of a steering group that works as the team towards the identified interventions in a collaborative manner makes this programme replicable and scalable.
One of the major achievements of this project has been the implementation of household level biogas plants in partnership with Urja Vikas Nigam in MP. Besides this, a toolkit giving the method of implementation for household based bio-gas plants was produced.
Effective functioning of steering group and the initiative towards rearing of Murra Buffalo in Jabalpur as a new enterprise was also initiated under this project.
