This study is part of a series of guided case studies aimed at exploring whether and under what conditions the application of a value chain approach can help accelerate economic growth in conflict-affected environments. Using the value chain framework, the study looks at interventions in the groundnuts sector of a larger integrated community development program called “Social and Economic Recovery through Community Development Initiatives” (SER-CD). SER-CD is implemented by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and funded by the EU and addresses the rehabilitation and revitalization of Guinea’s Forest Region where it borders Liberia, Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast.
