Afghanistan Value Chains (AVC)—Livestock


Titre : Afghanistan Value Chains (AVC)—Livestock

Pays  : Afghanistan

Date/Durée : 2018-2023

The Afghanistan Value Chains–Livestock (AVC-Livestock) project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, takes a market systems approach by working with promising Afghan livestock enterprises to stimulate demand and catalyze growth throughout targeted value chains. The project offers management consulting to these anchor firms to help them expand into domestic and international markets and attract private investment. By increasing productivity for farmers and downstream businesses in livestock value chains, AVC-Livestock helps raise incomes for thousands of households and create jobs for men, women, and young people.
