There are too few links existing between value chain researchers and value chain practitioners. The AgriFood chain toolkit is designed to help researchers and practitioners overcome this challenge. The Internet is a gateway to numerous websites, resources and tools to help us understand agrifood value chains or build the capacities of value chain actors and analysts. The missing links in this agriknowledge chain are effective mechanisms to foster interaction and exchange among researchers devising value chain tools and field practitioners using them.

The AgriFood chain toolkit acts as a clearing house and learning platform – using the power of information and communication technologies to bring together people and resources. It links the users of value chain resources to those who created them. It supports a community of practice drawing together researchers and practitioners to review, assess and improve value chain approaches. It helps the LF2M community create better-suited tools for value chain analysis and development.

The content and discussions facilitated by the AgriFood chain toolkit will eventually converge into a more curated and peer-reviewed site hosted by the CGIAR program on Policies, institutions and markets.
