A value chain includes all the actors that participate in bringing a product or service from its conception to its end use in the market, as well as the extent and type of relationships between these actors. Value chain development involves strengthening these product-to-market systems. The objective is to increase productivity and trade, and, ultimately, economic returns for small producers and businesses.

This value chain framework map inspired by the Integrating Very Poor Producers into Value Chains Field Guide - Second Edition publication.
