It aims at providing the necessary expertise for the analysis of value chains in partner countries at the demand of the EU Delegations or local Governments. It is based on an evidence-based quantitative analysis toolkit, the so-called “Methodological support for analyses and development of inclusive and sustainable value chains” elaborated by the European Commission.

The eco-village approach that is used in Igunga district is a holistic approach. It integrates interventions in a range of sectors (water, energy, agriculture and livestock, gender, HIV/Aids) in order to sustainably improve climate change resilience and reduce poverty.
