This article examines value chain dynamics, settlement trajectories and regional development. Through the examples of storable perennial crops (cocoa in Ghana and coffee in Vietnam), it argues that livelihood diversification – or lack thereof – indicates particular settlement trajectories that constitute regional development pathways. It is also suggested that the understanding of how regions are shaped by value chain dynamics will improve by adding elements from global production network theory to the combined methodology, namely by an examination of territorial embed-dedness and value (creation, enhancement, capture, distribution) at settlement level
