 Agricultural value chains involve millions of people as producers, small-scale traders, processors and retailers, but these actors often receive a disproportionately small share of the final price paid by consumers. Value Chains Development can ensure that small-scale farmers and producers enjoy a bigger piece of the financial pie.

The aim of the Value Chains Knowledge Clearinghouse,  a website launched this week by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM), is to provide a comprehensive and accessible repository of research methods and best practices surrounding value chain performance.

The Clearinghouse is led by IFPRI, in partnership with CIAT, ILRI, IITA, World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), ICRISAT, Bioversity, and CIP, all members of the PIM.
