Establishment of  lower MERV Vegetable Value Chain Livelihood Coordination Committee


IPV employed several methods, such as reviewing production data, conducting interviews with local authorities and experts, and assessing value chain actors in the area, to identify the specific value chain targeted for intervention.

The goal of this project was to actively involve and ensure collaborative management of the vegetable value chain rehabilitation efforts by engaging the Lower MERV Vegetable Value Chain Livelihood Coordination Committee (LCC) in the design of new activities and identifying existing gaps.

The accomplishments and impacts of this project include:

  1. Encouraging community participation in the value chain rehabilitation process.
  2. Advocating with community organizations for additional initiatives aimed at supporting the vegetable value chain.
  3. Contributing to enhanced stakeholder coordination and fostering better communication among different communities.
