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. This case study focused on two USAID-funded vegetable value chain projects implemented in rural, conflict-affected areas of Nepal. The Smallholder Irrigation Market Initiative (SIMI) employs a value chain approach with the primary objective of reducing poverty, while the UJYALO project integrates the value chain approach with psychosocial and peace-building activities and has building peace as the primary objective.
