Research Design: key activities /methodology

To shed light on these questions, we will develop new contextualized evidence on how SBRs are changing with COVID-19 and implications for participation in GVCs, with respect to horticultural value chain(s) in Kenya. We aim to implement this across 1-2 sub-sectors – to be finalized after a secondary review of evidence. With the available funding, we will focus on the development of a conceptual framework and case study on Covid-19, SBRs, and horticulture in Kenya, grounded in literature, secondary data, and key informant interviews. The intention, however, is to set the ground for broader mixed methods approaches in multiple countries/value chains.
