Improving Pro-Poor Manufacturing Sectors

Improved competitiveness in selected pro-poor manufacturing sectors through:

  • Identify options and develop recommendations for value-added production in selected sectors and supply chains (and for identifying activities needed to replicate the pilot models in other sectors-surgical instruments, sporting goods): 3 lean manufacturing case studies completed by 2012, 5 clusters with customized CBS implemented by 2014.
  • Capacity building of sector organizations to implement improved quality, value added and productivity programmes, including certification to recognized standards: 2 groups of enterprises from selected clusters apply improved manufacturing practices to meet market requirements by 2014.
