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. It documents the use of the value chain approach to shift the design of an infrastructure program from direct implementation to longer-term, sector development. The study focuses on the USAID-funded, CHF-implemented KATA project, which aims to advance stability in Haiti’s most conflict-prone cities by stimulating employment and supporting sustainable livelihoods.
