The Duke GVC Center has engaged in a number of projects with the World Bank. Our most recent project involved identifying upgrading opportunities for Peru in three key industries (2015/16). Prior to this, we conducted a similar study on three industries in Burundi (2013/14).

The World Bank has published several books that feature work on global value chains by Duke GVC Center researchers, such as Gary Gereffi, Stacey Frederick (apparel), Karina Fernandez-Stark (offshore services), Ghada Ahmed (call centers in Egypt), Penny Bamber (horticulture in Honduras), and Michelle Christian (tourism in Kenya). With Olivier Cattaneo and Cornelia Staritz of the World Bank, Gereffi co-edited Global Value Chains in a Post-Crisis World: A Development Perspective (The World Bank, 2010), as well as a special issue of the International Journal of Technological Learning, Innovation and Development on “Shifting End Markets and Upgrading Prospects in Global Value Chains” (2011).
