Economic Development through Value Chain and Enterprise Development

YSRSP’s Value Chain Development (VCD) programme encompasses a pro-poor development approach. The strategies have helped in job creation through strengthening enterprises, business relationships and improving market structures. SRSP’s VCD programmes have assisted in developing local micro and small enterprises and helped rural entrepreneurs in overcoming constraints such as poor market access and little bargaining power. Through value chain approach, producers are now linked to consumers’ needs, and are provided opportunities to work closely with suppliers and traders to produce specific goods that consumers demand. Similarly, through flow of information and products, consumers are linked to the needs of producers.

Value Chain & Entrepreneurship Development under EU-PEACE programme, DFAT-WEEMD project, PPAF supported interventions, UNDP supported initiatives have contributed to improve livelihoods and enhance incomes of local community members by manifolds.

Private Sector & Market Development Approach

Private Sector & Market Development (PSD) approach in recent past has also been focused by SRSP and is progressively being realized as prospective means for achieving sustainability. SRSP has implemented various approaches in PSD in most of its field interventions. These focus on building capacities, leveraging resources of private sector, ensuring inclusion of poor and stimulating change and innovation that continues to grow beyond the life of the programme/project interventions.
