Review and Finalisation of the Nut Sector Value Chain Development Strategy

Strengthening value chains for forest products can enable rural communities to engage better in markets, increase their incomes and therefore make choices about their own sustainable development. In this project, LTS provided expert input on the SNV VCD approach and experience to further develop the nut crops Value Chain Development Strategy to promote sustainable local economic development through the project Strengthening Sustainable Communal Forestry. LTS reviewed existing experience and documentation; met with SNV advisers, partners, clients and VC actors (including visits to Diber, Kukes, Shkoder and Korca); conducted multi-stakeholder workshop on SNV VCD approach and action planning based on existing experience and learning on a practical basis; worked with SNV advisers and LCBs to finalise the Nut sector strategy document with a clear results framework as well as a work plan of detailed activities that could be subsequently followed by both advisers and LCBs. LTS adopted a value chain analysis approach and particular attention was paid to VC mapping; VC management issues; G4E & gender analysis; and Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) with reference to Sida policy documents and approach.
