Agriculture value chains can often be highly complex and present challenges to development projects focused on improving production, reducing postharvest losses, or increasing market access. Conducting value chain assessments is a critical first step to thoroughly understanding sector dynamics. Learn about practical tools and methods to conduct horticulture value chain assessments. In this second webinar in the Horticulture for Development Professional Series, hosted by the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Horticulture.

This webinar will begin online at 11 a.m. EDT, Aug. 1. Registration is free and required.

Join us to hear lessons from the field in conducting different types of assessments to understand the horticulture landscape. We will focus on value chain analysis for Horticulture and Commodity Systems Assessment Methodology which is used to measure postharvest losses. This webinar will be led by Rashmi Ekka of Agribusiness Associates who has conducted horticulture assessments for many crops in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria and Rwanda.
