About DAI/Afghanistan Value Chains Program (AVCP):
Afghanistan Value Chains Program (AVCP), a USAID-funded program implemented by DAI Global, LLC (DAI), supports the expansion of sustainable agriculture-led economic growth across Afghanistan. AVCP achieves this goal through the support of anchor firms in the livestock and crops value chains. AVCP partners with and supports anchor firms through a market systems development approach, implemented through ‘Deal Notes’ which are co-designed agreements that respond to critical constraints while driving project outcomes. In implementing Deal Notes, AVCP works almost exclusively with agribusinesses and key value chain stakeholders to increase sales, investment, and productivity, among other key indicators. The growth of the anchor firms promotes the efficiency, profitability, and strengthening of the value chains with a direct and positive impact on rural economies, households, and livelihoods.
The AVCP focuses its interventions on key value chain leverage points, such as input suppliers or traders linked to large wholesalers, processors, and farmer associations. In doing so, AVCP will accomplish the following fundamental sub-purposes:
Sub-Purpose 1: Increased Productivity and Stability of Value Chains
Sub-Purpose 2: Improved Commercial Viability and Operational Efficiency of Agribusinesses
Sub-Purpose 3: Engage Afghan Women in Agriculture
Sub-Purpose 4: Climate Change Mitigation and Resiliency Strengthened
