Agricultural value chains

ADE has recognised expertise in value chain and food system analysis in EU and partner countries. The structure of the value chain and the role of each stakeholder from producer to consumer are of major importance in a globalised economy, particularly given the numerous crises which have affected the food system in recent years.

The analysis of agricultural value chains goes beyond the economic framework. It covers the range of stakeholders involved and their socio-economic implications, as well as access to technologies, infrastructure, and the role of relevant authorities.
