Participatory Needs Assessment in Six communities in Delta State

The value chains study was in preparation for the World Bank/DFID Growth Poles project. The

study prioritized value chains for possible donor interventions based on two key criteria:

  • The potential upsides in terms of the growth, employment and spill overs; and
  • Feasibility of success in terms of achieving international competitiveness, bringing about needed policy reforms and the capability of private actors to deliver the potential upsides.

The study focused on four states – Lagos, Cross River, Kano and Kaduna and covered 14 value chains namely: Agriculture based: -food processing, aquaculture, dairy, oil palm, rice, cocoa & poultry; Industry: -construction, light manufacturing, solid minerals & leather and Services: – ICT, wholesale/retail/trade & tourism. The real outcome was to identify some value chains (2-4 for each State) where there was good potential to achieve substantial growth and employment generation through a coordinated set of interventions by government, donors and private sector and to identify, broadly, what sort of interventions would be involved. Relevant data on the value chains was collected by NNF and sent to EME for analysis. The data was analyzed and a report was prepared for the World Bank.
