This study used a global value chain model to determine the effect of currency appreciation and its resultant impact on different sectors, value chains, and world output. Based on the global value chain (GVC) perspective, we derived a formula for the computation of world output adjustment by sectors caused by currency appreciation. Utilizing the WIOD database, we applied the formula to calculate the changes to the value-added by each sector level, given a specified currency appreciation.
Many development agencies are designing and implementing socially-inclusive agricultural interventions at the level of the value chain—covering multiple stages and different types of actors. Monitoring and evaluating the success of these value chain interventions require tools that can track the empowerment of and identify the constraints facing the women and men who participate across multiple stages of the value chain.
