World Bank and GDS: Value Chain Analysis in six sectors
A study for Global Development Solutions (GDS) and the World Bank. Identify and select two potential value chains for analysis from the following six sectors: agriculture and agro-processing; recycling and waste management; information, communications and technology entrepreneurship; municipal services; construction; and trade and Tripoli port development and trade logistics. Methodology: Collecting background research and figures on the various sectors being covered. In-depth interviews were also conducted with all key players in order to identify the value chains to be adopted. A prioritization assessment matrix was formulated to assess the various sectors with the highest potential using a set of different criteria. A snowball sampling method (commonly used to identify value chain stakeholders) was used to determine additional entities/companies to interview along the value chain. InfoPro and GDS conducted semi-structured interviews with stakeholders at every step in the value chain, including firms, government, NGOs, industry organizations, and others.
