The market-driven approach of the project is supported by four interrelated components: (1) improved on-farm production, (2) more efficient post-harvest processes, (3) improved marketing of agriculture crops and products, and (4) improved nutritional status, especially for women and children.  In addition to the major components, there are also a number of supporting cross cutting themes including systems strengthening for input suppliers; agriculture processors and support services; a focus on end markets and demand; an understanding of the role of value chain governance; a market systems perspective; recognition of the importance of inter-firm relationships and stakeholder participation; policy and enabling environment; gender inclusivity; and leveraging proven ICT capabilities to bring interventions to scale.
