RIVA Value Chain Analyzer is an online tool for policy makers, analysts and researchers to better understand their economy’s integration in global value chains (GVCs). It provides data and indicators based on estimated trade in value added flows between 72 economies in 38 sectors for 2007, 2011 and 2017. It is available at https://riva.negotiatetrade.org.
The interactive and automated features provided on RIVA support analyses and policy decision making that require mapping GVC integration and linkages. In addition, it also allows for convenient cross-country comparisons and benchmarking. Through the provision of interactive visualizations, flexible data querying and automated country brief generation, the platform offers useful background information for policymaking and negotiation in an interconnected world.
RIVA Value Chain Analyzer version 1 (RIVA 1.0) has been developed by Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in collaboration with the Forum for East Asia-Latin America Cooperation (FEALAC) and Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). Underlying data used in estimations came from the Asian Development Bank’s Multi-Regional Input Output Tables.
The launch of RIVA 1.0 will provide an opportunity to learn about the platform and participate in the discussion on how to better support policymakers in an interconnected world.
