The analysis of the role of horticultural value chains will be done by studying the behaviour, i.e. horticultural production decisions, savings and credit, migration, and intra-household allocation decisions; and well-being such as health, income, consumption, food security, of households in response to a variety of shocks. The shocks may be institutional, policy, and climatic changes. Finally, SP9 will also analyse the coping strategies used to overcome these shocks.
