Business enabling environment interventions complement the value chain approach in its targeting of specific industries, use of analytical tools and development of industry constituencies. In addition, the value chain framework is a useful construct for selecting and prioritizing reforms. This briefing paper provides guidelines for USAID missions and practitioners to design and execute successful business enabling environment interventions using the intersection between the reform and value chain development processes, describes what makes a reform successful and how to target reforms, and addresses reforms in the post-conflict context.
