Analysis of Model Value Chain in Vegetable Sectors in Uttarakhand
Regional Economic Development Program (RED) is being implemented in the State of Uttarakhand, India under the framework of Indo-German economic cooperation. In its efforts to improve upon several interrelated issues that tend to influence the pace of regional development in Uttarakhand, the RED programme intends to lay special focus on improving upon the “Business Investment Climate”. Apart from the mainstream value chains (which are often disadvantageous to poor because of their relative low bargaining power), there have been multiple initiatives to structure the VC s with focus on benefiting the poor. Some of these models have evolved over a long period with great deal of effort by various NGOs. The successful models have attained prominence and at times good out reach. A greater understanding of some successful examples of such VC structure is expected to be useful for GTZ _RED’s intervention strategy in the region.
