Country(ies)Bangladesh, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, Viet Nam
Implementing agency(ies)ILO
Date completedOctober 2007
Issues/challengesOver 1,000 people from 110 countries have now participated in the Seminars; for those who could not come to this year's Seminar, the main presentations are being posted on the right hand side. Please note, though, that this year there were fewer formal presentations, and more interviews and panel discussions.

The Reader, on the topic of measuring and reporting results, can be downloaded from the links on the right hand side, in English, French and Spanish. Our particular thanks to SDC for co-financing its preparation and publication.

Indeed, the whole Seminar focused largely on this theme of measuring results, and some very useful progress was made; this agenda is now being taken forward in various ways, on an inter-agency basis.
Contact person(s)Mr. Peter Tomlinson, Mr. Jim Tanburn
Thematically, sessions looked at:

- value chain analysis: where are we now? which methodology to use, where?
- boosting agricultural marketing, both in general, and for specific crops, including cassava, fish, maize, cashews and coffee
- building other value chains (bamboo, tourism) in pro-poor ways
- growing service markets, for example in certification and training
- the latest developments in instruments for value chain financing
- current thinking in Private Sector Development globally, for example around reform of the business environment
- global scenarios for the next years, and how they will affect our work
