Participants will be trained on the Value Chain Analysis (VCA) approach and in the use of the FAO-VCA software tool for policy making.
Emphasis will be placed on value added generation and distribution among the agents involved in value chain.
Computer sessions will be organized and all the support material on VCA including hand-outs, slides, exercises and the software will be made available from FAO’s EASYPol [online resources for policy making www.fao.org/easypol/].
During the workshop, the mission members and the participants will identify selected policy options relevant for the paddy rice value. The team will guide the participants for the set-up of the analytical work that will proceed in the subsequent months through distance support.
