Value Chains

 In international cooperation, reference is made to value chains whereas from a company's perspective it is referred to as supply chains. While the former focuses on increasing the competitiveness of small and medium enterprises and small-scale farmers and their integration into local and global value chains, sustainability of supply chains is becoming increasingly important for companies. Because sustainability is the guiding principle of international cooperation, there exist here an increasing number of opportunities for cooperation.

In the promotion of value chains, the approach of systemic competitiveness has been groundbreaking. The ValueLinks method, which was developed by the German Cooperation for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH, applies a systematic approach. With ValueLinks, projects can be ideally managed from value chain analysis to strategy development onto the implementation of activities with numerous stakeholders.



Como advises and supports projects of international cooperation at all stages of project management, from the selection of promotional value chains, through to strategy development together with stakeholders and to the implementation of improvement measures. We carry out training courses for employees of development organisations and their partner institutions, often in combination with concrete policy development processes in order to save time and money while contributing to the capacity building of local actors.
