Following from this, Integrated Framework and Enhance Integrated Framework should prioritise commodity development strategies in the DTISs in order to help the countries move up the value chain into manufacturing and industrial development activities associated with commodity production. It is against this background, this study was undertaken.
The study shows that there are significant gaps in the attention given to commodities in the existing DTISs. Useful pointers for commodity development were found. However interventions to support commodity development remain fragmented with little attention paid to a coherent approach at policy, institutional and enterprise levels. A major recommendation is the need for a robust management information system at the country level to keep track of results and impacts from IF interventions.
