Improving Livelihoods and Prosperity through Value-Added Agriculture: East-West Economic Corridor of Greater Mekong Subregion
The study describes the creation four clusters for organic vegetables along the East West Economic Corridor (EWEC) of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). These clusters have three goals: (a) to foster the conversion of conventional agricultural farming to organic production, and thereby enable the generation of high value-added activities; (b) to promote linkages among micro and small scale producers, and thereby improve their competitive position within the value chain; and (c) to spur the development of agricultural activities affecting the majority of the EWEC population either directly or indirectly, and thereby enable the transformation of the EWEC transport and logistics corridor into a full-fledged economic corridor.
