International Development Organizations To Use The Global Value Chain (GVC)

July 28, 2014   |   Gary Gereffi, Xubei Luo   |   Ideas for Africa
The African Development Bank, OECD Development Centre, and the United Nations Development Programme became the latest international development organisations to use the global value chain (GVC) framework in examining Africa’s potential integration into GVCs in the 2014 African Economic Outlook: Global Value Chains and Africa’s Industrialisation (AfDB, OECD, and UNDP 2014). Global value chains have become increasingly prominent within the development community, and there has been an active debate about whether the framework is being used to advance neo-liberal or pro-poor development objectives (Dalle et al. 2014). Actually, both arguments are valid. While the explosion of inter-firm trade in intermediate products and ‘trade in tasks’ has indeed transformed the way we think about competitiveness and global trade (Lamy 2013, Timmeret al. 2013), GVC scholars are also advancing a new development agenda by highlighting the risks as well as the opportunities associated with participation in GVCs, and assessing how both economic and social upgrading might occur in developing economies (Gereffi and Luo 2014).
