Value Chain Analysis for Policy Making: FAO VCA Tool 3.2

Download the FAO VCA-Tool 

This analytical tool allows users to systematically gather, store and manage data for the implementation of cost-benefit and value-added analyses. Users can build different scenarios and analyze the socio-economic impact of various policies — such as domestic prices liberalization, opening to international trade, new technologies adoption. Users can use the software to build a baseline scenario which corresponds to a benchmark situation; once users generate the policy measures or changes in the value chain, their impacts will modify the original reference scenario. 

The software is the complementary tool to the "Value Chain Analysis for Policy Making: Methodological Guidelines for a Quantitative Approach" document, which provides the conceptual and methodological framework for value chain analysis.
