Value Chains in Burundi

2013 : Analyze and establish a diagnosis of identified value chains (rice, maize, banana and milk) in the different areas of intervention of the PAIOSA

Country: Burundi
Name of client: Ministère de l’Agriculture et de l’Elevage - Burundi
Origin of funding: Agence Belge de Développement

This study has established many relevant conclusions which were echoed by the sponsors

Context

Within the frame of the PAIOSA Program (Institutional and operational support program to the agricultural sector), 4 sectors have been selected: rice, maize, banana and milk.
Within these 4 sectors, the program aims at improving the competitiveness of 3 value chains (by areas of intervention: Imbo, Bugesera and Moso)
In order to achieve this objective, it is necessary to analyze and to make a complete diagnosis of these value chains (product flow, identification of stakeholders, highlighting the weak link ...). It is in this context that a RONGEAD expert was recruited.

Global Objective

Analyze and establish a diagnosis of identified value chains in the different areas of intervention of the PAIOSA.

Specific Objectives

  • Define circuits and product flows within the previously identified value chains in the areas of intervention of the PAIOSA (cross flow).
  • Analyze the marketing, processing and markets products within the identified value chains (vertical line).
  • Define and characterize the different stakeholders (direct or economic operators, supporters of chain, institutions and temporary actors) of the identified value chains.
  • Perform a financial analysis of the identified value chains (wealth creation within the value chain, costs and added value at different stages of the value chain, distribution of income between the different actors of the value chain). 
  • Identify the weak link to strengthen in each value chain.

Expected results

1. Circuits and product flow (physical flow) are defined for each of the 9 identified value chains in the three areas of intervention of the PAIOSA.
2. The various stakeholders in the value chain, their interaction within the value chain (communication / information flow) and the trading rules (regulation, contracts, relationships of power ...) are characterized for each of the 9 identified value chains.
3. Wealth creation within the value chain is analyzed for each of the 9 identified value chains (distribution of income between the different actors, added value and costs at every stage of the value chain ...).
4. The weak link to strengthen for each value chain is identified.

Main activities

  • 1st stage - Documentary study and collect of information
  • 2nd stage - Analysis and diagnosis of value chains

Two missions have been carried out in Burundi between November and December 2013.
