It asked basic questions like what do we know about the 4 subsectors – fishing, agriculture, livestock and services provision chain value in Puntland? Who are involved in these subsectors? How small or large are the organizations and various stakeholders implicated in these value chains? Are women concerned and if so what roles do women play in the process of the chain value?
