The Programme has three components:
Component 1: Value Chain Development - is central to ensuring strong business linkages among actors in the entire value chains of commodities to ensure they meet market or consumer and industry demands. It has sub-components: Agribusiness linkage development and climate change resilience which needs to be mainstreamed in promoting value chains to reduce risks and enhance profitability and sustainable production systems.
Component 2: Rural Value Chain Infrastructure - aimed at providing the enabling infrastructure to catalyze value chain development. It has two sub-components: (i) Productive Infrastructure facilities and implements such as tractors, power tillers, threshers, rice mills, and multi-crop harvesters, aimed at encouraging investments in commercial infrastructure and facilities for the selected value chains; and (ii) Enabling Public Infrastructure – aimed at financing enabling public infrastructure such as feeder roads / farm-tracks, small scale irrigation schemes, warehouses, packhouses, drying floors, and bonding of rice fields to support the growth and viability of selected value chains.
Component 3: Knowledge Management, Policy Support and Coordination - aimed at harnessing successful lessons for replication and providing an enabling environment for optimization of programme opportunities and benefits. The Knowledge Management, Harmonization and Policy Support sub-component also aims at creating an enabling environment for smallholders to participate in profitable and climate change resilient agricultural value chains and Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation of the Programme.
