As a core approach for livelihood enhancement, the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) has adapted the value chain approach. Since its inception, AdaptHimal (Enhancing Adaptation Capacity and Resilience of the Poor to Climate and Socioeconomic Changes) has focused on value chain promotion to enhance income of the mountain people.
Under technical support extended to AdaptHimal partners, ICIMOD is organising a three-day Training of Trainers (ToT) on value chain development in partnership with Kisankalagi Unnat Biu-Bijan Karyakram – Improved Seed for Farmers Programme (KUBK-ISFP) for KUBK-ISFP staff and partners in Nepal.
The ToT is organised to develop participant understanding on the relevance of a value chain approach for pro-poor and inclusive growth in the context of changing climate and provide additional income generation option in pilot sites of AdaptHimal. At the end of the training, trainees will understand value chains in a more holistic way, identify prospective actors and major leverage points, and design interventions for development and implementation of value chain activities at the local level.
The training will focus on dairy and seed value chains. An exposure visit to observe value chains in action is also planned.
