Promoting value chain development is increasingly being recognized as a promising approach to address not only economic development, job creation and inclusive growth, but a wider range of social and environmental development issues. The paper outlines the different approaches and perspectives that seven UN agencies apply in their work on value chain development. It also points to some of the challenges the UN system is facing in enhancing its effectiveness and coherence and offers some initial consideration for how the UN system could leverage its strengths further in value chaindevelopment.
