and Value Chain Project Design
This course provides an introduction to market-based economic development and a standard approach to conducting gender-sensitive market analysis and designing value chain initiatives.

The course targets teams and individuals new to the value chain approach with a detailed, step-by-step introduction to conducting the analysis they need to design their interventions. The course also offers experienced practitioners the tools they need to integrate women’s empowerment and gender considerations throughout their design process.
Comprised of 14 modules, the course requires 4-7 hours of online time as well as an equal or greater amount of offline time to complete.
