    • Examine the dynamics of specified value chains, including reward distribution and social/power relations;
    • Study the current capacities and development needs of actors, who are disaggregated by sex and vulnerability, involved in the selected value chains;
    • Identify and examine the opportunities and constraints within the existing value chains, and recommend interventions to support inclusive and sustainable development; and
