Leveraging the global value chain (GVC) framework, the Duke GVC Center conducts industry-centric research on economic globalization that highlights linkages across geographic space. This has helped inform decision-making for stakeholders throughout the continent. Our work in Africa has looked at inclusive development, upgrading, and workforce development opportunities for a number of countries in a range of agro-food, light manufacturing, and service industries.

The following is a snapshot of our work on Africa:

– Reports: 16

– Publications: 9

– Geographies: 12 countries (Burundi, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Morocco, Rwanda, Sierra Leone Swaziland, Tanzania, Tunisia and Uganda)

– Clients: International Trade Center (ITC), Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Bank, International Growth Center (IGC), OECD, Oxfam, RTI International and USAID/ACDI-VOCA.
