Description: The value chain and market systems development practice area is gaining increased focus within USAID. As a result, there is increasing interest on how to strengthen this practice area and what lessons can be learned from Missions and activities that have applied the approach. USAID contracted the Knowledge Driven Agriculture and Development (KDAD) consortium to have EcoVentures International prepare a case study to explore the investments made by USAID/Bangladesh in their Economic Growth (EG) portfolio on developing market systems. The case study focuses on the USAID/Bangladesh investment in their AVC activity.
