These case studies supplement the 5Capitals tool developed by CATIE. Five case studies were selected, with a geographical spread and a focus on different, crops, target markets and beneficiaries: Nicaragua - certified coffee; Colombia - fresh fruits and vegetables; Afghanistan - fresh vegetables; India – handicrafts; and United States - organic vegetables. The goal of the case studies is to offer readers insights for their work on value chains.
