Resilient Value Chains

World demand for food is expected to double by 2050, spurred by population growth, a growing middle class and changing tastes in developed and emerging economies. Meanwhile arable land will only increase by 15%, water is scarce, weather patterns are affected by climate change.

SNV's Resilient Value Chains product is integrated interventions on the farm, supply chain and government level to create resilient and sustainable value chains.

We train smallholders on good agricultural practices that will allow them to run their farm as an enterprise, while mitigating and adapting to climate change. We stimulate and strengthen famer cooperative that help smallholders to increase economies of scale, provide market information to farmers and develop market commitments from traders and processors. We analyse challenges and identify opportunities to build sustainable smallholder supply chains. Our Climate Risk Assessment tool helps us to identify and integrate climate-smart solutions throughout the value chains in our projects. We work with private and public actors to strengthen extension services and ensure sustainability of our results. We support the formation of public private partnerships to ensure involvement of all interests in tackling development issues, and to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to complex problems.

We have 50 years of experience working in Resilient Value Chains projects. We currently work on over 150 projects in 28 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America covering over 50 commodities, with a focus on 8 key commodities: cassava, cocoa, coffee, dairy, horticulture, livestock, palm oil and rice. SNV employs more than 300 experts with skills in value chain, analysis, business development and extension services.
