Component 2 – Strengthening Environmental Resilience and Social Inclusion for VCD: 

This Component supports interventions aimed at ensuring that efforts to strengthen priority value chains are environmentally sound and resilient to climate fluctuations, and that women, youth and economically and socially vulnerable groups are able to participate effectively in and benefit from the improved value chains. The component therefore aims to:

  • Raise awareness and knowledge of the importance of environmental sustainability, Natural Resource Management (NRM) and the causes and effects of climate change;
  • Improve access to and use of appropriate NRM and climate change technologies and services, particularly for women, youth and vulnerable groups, and;
  •  Improve access by women and vulnerable VC stakeholders to basic economic and social security services, with a view to position them to participate more effectively in value chain production. 

 The component supports specific policy commitments and, where necessary, policy change that ensure;

a) Value chain development not only ‘does no harm’, but also maintains local ecosystems where possible

b) The resource poor and vulnerable groups are availed basic socio-economic and organizational support to enable them participate meaningfully in the value chains being developed under the programme.
