Integrated Value Chain Analysis™ Integrated Value Chain Analysis™ Presentation Transcript

  • An Overview of the Integrated Value Chain Analysis™ Of Selected Strategic Sectors The Government of Ethiopia and The World Bank Group Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 23 May 2006 Presented by Global Development Solutions, LLC™
    • Sectors Presented
    • Cut Flowers (Roses)
    • Cotton-to-Garments (Polo Shirt)
    • Skins-to-Leather Shoe
    • Housing/Road Construction
  • Value Chain Analysis for Cut Flowers (Roses)
  • Market Opportunities and Characteristics
    • Fierce Competition with downward price trends
    • Stricter breeders’ rights as well as environmental and social codes of conduct increasingly important
    • In some countries, such as the UK, increased importance of supermarket (direct sales) distribution channels
    Cut Flowers Roses Ethiopian Exports (Roses): $10 million (2005) Global Demand (Cut flowers/buds) $12.3 billion (2005)
  • Key Findings from the Value Chain Analysis
    • Farming with self propagated material or in hydroponics media both provides superior cost competitiveness via reduced plant material cost and higher yields
    Cut Flowers Roses US$255,683/ha US$0.155/stem 1.65 mil stems/ha US$294,190/ha US$0.150/stem 2.1 mil stems/ha
    • Insufficient coverage of cargo flights exacerbates the already high portion of transportation and marketing cost in the total farm to market value chain
    Farming 24.1% Post-Harvest Handling 1.5% Transport & Marketing 74.4% Farm-to-Market Value Chain for Hydroponics-Grown Roses Farm-to-Market Value Chain for Soil-Grown Roses Farming 24.8% Post-Harvest Handling 1.7% Transport & Marketing 73.5%

  • Cut Flowers Roses Hydroponics vs. Soil Production
  • Cut Flowers Roses Benchmarking Key Characteristics of Rose Production in Ethiopia
  • Key Constraints and Challenges Cut Flowers Roses
    • Poor clearinghouse services
    • Undeveloped network of supporting service providers, especially in the area of insurance and freight forwarding/clearing
    • Nonexistent research and development, at business and public sector level
    • Increased diversification away from direct sales towards Dutch Auctions
  • Actions/Way Forward
    • Increase usage of hydroponics growing medium
    • Increase self-propagation of plant material
    • Increase usage of support services rather than do all marketing by themselves
    • Do not entirely diversify away from direct sales
    Firm Level Industry Level
    • Establish Codes of Conduct
    • Create captive cost-minimizing supply chain structures for fertilizer and other inputs
    • Create industry level linkages with the support industries such as insurance and freight forwarding
    • Create partnerships with the public sector to intensify research and development
    Cut Flowers Roses
  • Actions/Way Forward
    • Establish a working system of breeders’ right protection with eventual membership in the UPOV - gain observer’s status in UPOV as an intermediary step;
    • Establish clearing house facilities at airport and increase cargo freight fleet by Ethiopian Airlines; and
    • Increase spending in research and development.
