|Tóm tắt:||Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a versatile crop that plays a vital role in sustaining smallholders’ livelihoods, and in increasing farmers’ income. This research assessed the cassava value chain in Dak Lak province, Vietnam. It demonstrated the need for enhanced efficiency in the production of cassava thus enhancing the cassava value chain. Value chain analysis was conducted through a questionnaire-based survey of 300 household farmers, in-depth interviews with key informants, and focus group discussions in seven communes in three districts. The aim was to explore how to improve and develop the value chain, increase stakeholders’ incomes and particularly, to ensure sustainable household livelihoods. The findings relating to the sharing of value added among the stakeholders showed that farmers create the highest value added but that intermediaries derive the most profit. In addition, relationships exist amongst different stakeholder ranging from input providers to the final users which are overwhelmingly starch and ethanol factories. There is a local linkage between input suppliers and farmers, both spot-market and persistent relationships which exist between farmers and intermediaries. Furthermore, the distribution of both gross and net profits overwhelmingly favors the traders and processors. However, intermediaries play an important role and the farmers would not secure full benefits without their support.|
