Institutions include international, regional and national non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, statistical organizations, industry associations and other groups that have staff in-house or contract with outside organizations to conduct value chain studies.

These groups publish GVC guides, toolkits and handbooks and actively produce reports, working papers and books that provide industry and geographic-specific case studies. These organizations are interested in GVC research as a framework to guide policymaking that takes into account the economic, social and/or environmental concerns of the institution.
