What we do

VCDP works to enhance productivity and access to markets for rice and cassava smallholder farmers through a commodity value chain approach. The programme adopts a holistic and demand-driven approach to addressing constraints along the cassava and rice value chains. VCDP supports the development of Nigeria’s rice and cassava value chains using an inclusive strategy of capacity strengthening of actors along the chain (producers, processors and their organisations), as well as enablers (public and private institutions, service providers, policy and regulatory environment). In parallel, strong emphasis is placed on developing commodity-specific Value Chain Action Plans at LGA level for specificity, and which serve as the basis for rolling out relevant and sustainable activities.
