2012 Evidence Summit: Gary Gereffi on Trends in the Development of Value Chains

Gary Gereffi of Duke University sat down with session moderator Jeanne Downing of USAID to offer evidence on global, regional, and local trends in the development of value chains and the extent to which they are inclusive. Gereffi’s understanding of inclusive value chain development includes countries’ ability to access global value chains (often initially through exports) in such a way that local firms are able to participate and capture more activities up and down the chain. In his final point, Gereffi urges donors to think about ways to integrate smallholders into regional or global value chains.
