  • Shirley, to elaborate FYI: The core R4D approach lies in the three research outputs at the centre of the diagram. Our intention was to be fairly prescriptive about this as we didn’t see how you could implement this approach successfully without knowing what situation farm households face, what options there are for integrating innovation and some sort of handle on scaling processes. The blue circle is less cast in stone but we felt you would probably need to do at least some of these “activities” to generate the research outputs. Methodological approaches are not included in the framework as they depend on local circumstances and the skills / preferences of the research teams implementing.
    Get back to me if you need further clarification on this one.

    1. 1. ILRI IN ETHIOPIA Iain Wright, DG’s Representative in Ethiopia EIAR-ILRI Management Meeting Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 20 November 2013
    2. 2. ILRI acts in three (mutually reinforcing) areas  To prove that better use of livestock can make a big difference in enough people’s lives through improved practice.  To influence decision-makers so that they will increase investment in livestock systems.  To ensure there is sufficient capacity in developing countries and among investors to use increased investment effectively and efficiently.
    3. 3. Improving practices for better lives through livestock – strong growth 3
    4. 4. Improving small ruminant value chains R4D integrated to transform selected value chains for selected commodities in selected countries Consumers Value chain development team and research partners This program will be a long-term engagement (at least 6 years) in Ethiopia at the selected sites provided we can make it work!
    5. 5. LIVES Livestock and Irrigation Value chains for Ethiopian Smallholders (LIVES) Project
    6. 6. LIVES Objectives • Introduction/adaptation of tested and new value chain interventions for targeted value chains/areas (value chain development) • Capacity development of value chain actors, service providers and educational institutions (capacity development) • Introduction/adaptation of tested and new knowledge management interventions in support of value chain development (knowledge management) • Generation and documentation of new knowledge on value chain interventions through diagnosis, action and impact research studies (action research) • Promotion of knowledge generated for scaling out beyond the project areas (promotion for scaling out) 6
    7. 7. Africa RISING • RISING = Research into Sustainable Intensification for a New Generation • USD 9m across three project (Guinea Savannah, Ethiopian Highlands, East and Southern Africa) • USD 2m for Ethiopian Highlands • R4D / farming systems approach to SI in mixed crop-livestock systems 7
