The level of poverty among mountain populations is linked, directly or indirectly, with specific mountain conditions like geographic isolation, socio-cultural marginalization, poor physical and economic infrastructure and poor access to markets, technologies, and information. Value chain interventions in the high-value products and services sector can successfully engage small farmers and producers.

This publication lays out the findings of action research on six value chain interventions: Malta oranges; Kuth and Kutki, two medicinal and aromatic plants; Indian bay leaf; off-beat tourism; and nettle plant fibres. Based on the findings, the publication recommends continued support for the development of livelihood options related to high-value products and services.
