Our Joint Programmes
Strengthening the banana value chain through the growth of inclusive markets
Banana production is an important source of foreign exchange for the Dominican Republic, and of employment and income in the poor provinces of the North-West and South of the country, where poverty exceeds 50 %. The Joint Programme is helping to strengthen the banana value chain by installing technology and ICTs, boosting competitiveness in production and commerce, promoting decent work and developing the community’s human and social capital through use of the inclusive markets model.
