Project Reports

BBP Inception Report
November 2015

bbp inception report nov 2015The BBP Project Inception Report presents an overview of the project’s main outputs and activities to enhance biodiversity-based products (BBP) value chains. The project outputs are intended to contribute to the overall objective of improving livelihoods and biodiversity protection in the ASEAN Member States.

The report introduces the four selected pilot sites and the highlights of the value chain gap analyses conducted in these sites to prioritize the most promising BBP value chains that the project could support. Also included are recommended strategies and financial plans for the prioritized BBP value chains.

The pilot sites, composed of three ASEAN Heritage Parks in Lao PDR (1) and Viet Nam (2) as well as one (1) National Protected Area and proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site in Cambodia, represent some of the ASEAN region’s most biologically and culturally diverse areas.

BBP Inception Workshop Report
December 2015

bbp inception workshop report dec 2015The BBP Project Inception Workshop held in Lao PDR in November 2015 brought together participants from the three ASEAN Member States that are part of the project. It served as an opportunity to develop a common understanding of the project’s goals and flesh out plans and activities.  

The activity allowed participants to go through 11 BBP value chain gap analyses that have been previously prepared by the project, learn how to assess the value chains and select which ones should be prioritized for further project support, and develop work and financial plans for the prioritized value chains.   

During the 4-day event, participants also gained knowledge on the ValueLinks methodology that the project is using to promote green value chains.

BBP Value Chain Gap Analysis Phnom Kulen National Park (Cambodia)

bbp value chain gap phnom kulenOne of the earliest efforts of the Biodiversity-Based Products (BBP) Project was to do value chain gap analyses in the four selected pilot sites in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam. This was done to gather information on the most promising BBPs in the sites and develop ways by which project can facilitate value chain development that promote pro-poor growth.

The value chain gap analysis done in Phnom Kulen National Park in Cambodia identified three biodiversity-based products that had the highest potential for value chain development: wild honey, bamboo handicraft, and the medicinal plant Zingiberaceae. Enhancing the value chain of these products can help improve livelihood and food security of communities in the park’s buffer zone and reduce pressure on the park’s forests.

BBP Value Chain Gap Analysis for Nam Ha ASEAN Heritage Park (Lao PDR)

This was done to gather information on the most promising BBPs in the sites and develop ways by which project can support value chain development that promote pro-poor growth.

In the Nam Ha National Protected Area in Lao PDR, the study noted the considerable bamboo resources along the buffer zone of the park and identified villages with the highest potential for value chain development for bamboo handicraft and bamboo furniture. The cardamom medicinal herb was also identified as a potential BBP value chain that could be supported.

BBP Value Chain Gap Analysis for Ba Be ASEAN Heritage Park (Viet Nam)

bbp value chain gap ba beOne of the earliest efforts of the Biodiversity-Based Products (BBP) Project was to do value chain gap analyses in the four selected pilot sites in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam. This was done to gather information on the most promising BBPs in the sites and develop ways by which project can support value chain development that promote pro-poor growth.

Among all the scanned BBP value chains in the area, three sub-sectors were prioritized for possible further support: honey, the medicinal vegetable Bo Khai, and the medicinal tea Giao Co Lam. The study identified various strategies for enhancing the value chains for these products, such as those that seek to ensure sustainable harvests of the raw materials; increase the number of households involved in the enterprises; and create business linkages among community producers, processors, traders, and distributors.

BBP Value Chain Gap Analysis for Hoang Lien Sa Pa National Park (Viet Nam)

This was done to gather information on the most promising BBPs in the sites and develop ways by which project can support value chain development that support pro-poor growth.

The gap analysis, which included the participation of local stakeholders, led to the selection of three sub-sectors for potential value chain development support: brocade weaving, bath medicinal herbs and essential oils, and medicinal teal Giao Co Lam. The gap analysis identified opportunities and options for value chain enhancement in these enterprises, which can help widen livelihood options of the poor communities in the area and reduce natural resources exploitation.

Guideline for the Development of Biodiversity-based Value Chains to Support Livelihood Improvement and Biodiversity Protection in ASEAN Member States

bbp guidelineThis Guideline is based on the ValueLinks Manual, developed by Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. From the first ValueLinks seminars and the founding of the International ValueLinks Association e.V. in 2009, a revised version, ValueLinks 2.0, was published in 2019 which particularly addressed the sustainability issues in value chain analysis, strategy formation, and program implementation.
