In the context of the activities of ENPARD II/Egypt and upon a request from the Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation of Egypt, it was proposed to address the issue of the agricultural value chains and ways and methods to raise their efficiency. Tomato crop was selected to be studied as an example for agricultural value chains in Egypt, due to its importance. Importance of tomato is reflected in several aspects; it is the largest crop among the vegetable crops in Egypt, accounting for 36% of the total volume of vegetable production, it is cultivated by a relatively large number of farmers, it occupies the first place with respect to vegetable consumption, it enters as raw material in tomato processing, and It is an important export crops, both in fresh form and processed. The Participatory Approach adopted in ENPARD II activities was followed. According to such approach, two workshops were organized; the first in January, 11-12, 2018 and the second in March, 14-15, 2018 with the participation of members of the Think Tank- which was formed at the beginning of ENPARDII- in addition to a group of representatives of the actors of the tomato value chain, tomato producers, cooperatives, processors, exporters, researchers and academics.
