My employer, ACDI/VOCA, is an implementing partner on the USAID-Funded Feed the Future Advancing Entrepreneurial Agriculture for Improved Nutrition project in Sierra Leone. The project strengthens target agricultural value chains using a facilitation approach that leverages public and private partners to improve economic and nutritional outcomes among beneficiaries and linked actors.
I’m the headquarters market systems technical advisor on the project. To refine the design and workplan, I led an updated value chain analysis from design through research and reporting. It’s attached here for reference. I also led the initial value chain analysis to inform USAID’s design for the project solicitation in 2015, linked here.
