Towards inclusive rural development: Agricultural value chains, local economic development and stakeholders’ dynamics.
This publication originates in a regional seminar organised by BTC in Lima in 2009. It highlights two approaches that are used more and more in agriculture and rural development, namely the value chain approach and the local economic development approach. First, these approaches are put in perspective against the evolving background of the Belgian and international agricultural sector. Next, these approaches are assessed as part of specific experiences in the regional project portfolio implemented by the bilateral cooperation.
