USAID Albanian Agriculture Competitiveness Program: Your Partner to Compete in High-Value Markets
USAID’s AAC program focuses on stimulating growth in Albania’s agricultural sector, and thereby contributing to the achievement of sustained broadbased economic growth and poverty reduction in targeted rural areas. This is being achieved through the introduction of technological innovations including: new crops, new varieties and advanced production practices; institutional innovations consistent of forward and backward market linkages, facilitation of contractual arrangements for risk reduction and making markets more efficient; and organizational innovations to achieve economies of scale in production and marketing as a way to overcome the effects of small farm size prevalent in most parts of Albania.
AAC follows a value chain approach, which provides a systematic framework to identify and prioritize project interventions, which are categorized in three main components: a) strengthening producer capacity for competitive commercial farming, b) strengthening capability for market development, and c) increasing access to and use of timely and reliable market information.
