Potato Value Chain

At the African Potato Association conference in Addis Ababa in 2016, workshops were held to discuss how the WPC could help strengthen the Potato value chain in East Africa. After the sessions, it was clear that partnerships between enterprises or entities that saw their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) to help those who seek some sort of assistance to improve their own lives or those of their communities through the potato value chain being improved. In some contexts, it is also seen as a way to alleviate poverty. This is particularly true in the remote mountain regions of the tropical world, where the poorest people live today.

A tool box was designed to address, in specific ways, the needs of individuals and communities.
