Policy, trade and value chains

The Policy, trade and value chains program houses many of ILRI’s agricultural economists. Our research objective is to understand how public policies on the one hand, and institutions and organizations created by market stakeholders on the other hand, impact on the performance of domestic and international agrifood value chains, with a strong focus on livestock products. By bringing about change in policies and institutions, we help improve the way markets function and enhance peoples’ capacities to reach better lives through livestock.

Our team members have expertise in devising tailored tools and methods for policy monitoring, policy evaluation, and value chains analysis. We can help development practitioners and other researchers identify and value potential market demand for their products and services. We can assist policy makers in understanding the impacts of their current and future policies on market stakeholders.
