The project will produce the following outputs for the benefit of small-scale producers: (a) Identified inefficiencies of supply and value chains that lead to strategies to improve value chain efficiency and strengthen the furniture industry and (b) Strategies and actions to strengthen market engagement and position leading to enhanced value addition and capture of higher prices.
The expected impacts are (a) Improved value chain efficiency and security for over 15,000 furniture enterprises (177,000 jobs); (b) Enhanced incomes for small-scale producers; (c) Greater role in the value chains for small-scale producers and their organisations. To avoid creating unhealthy power imbalances with tree growers, the project will work in close coordination with another ACIAR-CIFOR project that focuses on improving the livelihoods of tree growers.
