The Value Chain Capacity Building Network (VCB-N), is the biggest regional Network on value chain and market system development in the Asia-Pacific Region, providing professional advisory services and capacity building support to a variety of clients. 

Our Network has been initiated by an IFAD-funded project “Regional training network for scaling up pro-poor value chain programmes” in recognition of IFAD’s growing portfolio of projects with the mandate for value chain development in the Asia-Pacific Region. This is under the context that there are significant gaps and variability in the capacities/competencies of implementing partners to effectively develop, execute and scale inclusive and poverty-reducing market systems. In 2019 the VCB-N was formally registered as an independent member-owned and - governed network in Switzerland. 

The Network is drawing on experiences and expertise of Centres of Excellence (CoEs) from seven countries including Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam that specialized in professional training and capacity development on VC&MSD. We offer tailor-made capacity building plan and advisory services including development of training modules, hand-holding and accompaniment support, documentation through case studies and value-chain analysis leading to positively influencing policies.

The COVID19 pandemic has shown us that continuous learning, working together and supporting each other is more relevant than ever. Membership of the VCB-N provides you with plenty of opportunity for growth in terms of knowledge, network, operational scope and business. Membership will ease access to knowledge and information, enhance your visibility and reputation and increase your network, client base thus organizational positioning and resilience.
