Development of agricultural value chains is necessary to help smallholder farmers in Africa. Domestic agricultural policies and trade policies impact all economic agents along the value chain, from farmers to traders to consumers. Thus, it is critical to understand the impact of policy distortions to agricultural incentives along the complete value chain. This AGRODEP Incentives along Value Chains (IVC) Toolbox in Excel, has been developed to aid AGRODEP researchers in conducting this type of analysis on distortions in the value chain with a focus on agriculture.
Accompanying Technical Note 16 provides a description of the Nominal Rate of Protection methodology as well as a description of the Incentives along Value Chains (IVC) Toolbox in Excel
