Abstract

To reduce post-harvest losses and foster development of cassava, it is necessary to evaluate the full range of activities required to bring fresh cassava root through different stages of production, processing, and marketing until it reaches the end-user. A Value Chain Analysis (VCA) provides the approach for such an understanding in that it is a process of tracing a product’s flow from the point of production to the point of consumption along with tracing the roles and relationships of different actors and stakeholder at different points in the value chain. This paper provides an overview of the main cassava value chains in Vietnam, and the extent and nature of losses and wastes in those value chains.
