Transcript of "Introduction to the ‘TechFit’ feed technology workshop"

  1. 1. Introduction to the ‘TechFit’ feed technology workshop Workshop on Feed Technology Screening and Prioritisation, Dehra Dun, India, 19-22 September 2011 Alan Duncan and V. Padmakumar
  2. 2. Objectives <ul><li>To develop and field test an analytical framework that can be used to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Collect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Screen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prioritise </li></ul></ul><ul><li>possible feed interventions </li></ul><ul><li>from multiple angles (technical, institutional, social and economic) in various contexts </li></ul>
  3. 3. Outputs <ul><li>Results of workshop and field testing will be condensed into a form suitable for wider distribution and application (following some field testing). End-users will be defined (researchers, development people?) </li></ul><ul><li>It will contain the justification, the approaches/methodology and some application examples of how the technology prioritisation tool can be used. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Background <ul><li>Conventional approach to R&D for feed development  technologies </li></ul><ul><li>A few favourites: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Urea treatment of straw </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Planted forage (especially legumes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bypass protein </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>UMB </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Scattergun approach  ltd success </li></ul>
  5. 5. New thinking <ul><li>Innovation approaches – stakeholder focus, broad coalitions of actors, thinking beyond technological fixes </li></ul><ul><li>But... still a need to facilitate tech introduction but in a more structured way </li></ul><ul><li>Various projects have faced this challenge: ELKS, EADD, CSISA </li></ul><ul><li>Would be good to have a common framework </li></ul>
  6. 6. TechFit <ul><li>Innovation approaches take some time </li></ul><ul><li>Could we help to accelerate innovation in feeds sector by developing a simple framework to help dev professionals to prioritize interventions? </li></ul><ul><li>This would need to take a broad view of contextual factors: productivity, economic, social, labour, gender </li></ul><ul><li>This workshop follows an approach used to develop FEAST (rapid method to identify feed issues) </li></ul>
  7. 7. How does it relate to FEAST? <ul><li>FEAST  Quick diagnosis of key livestock feeding issues using PRA and very light data collection </li></ul><ul><li>Helps to structure thinking and allows dialogue with stakeholders on what the key feeding issues are and how they fit into the broader context </li></ul><ul><li>Techfit could follow to help get more specific and more analytical on which feed technologies might work in a particular context. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Nutritional Technologies Balanced Compounded Feeds Straw TMR blocks Surplus-Deficit linkage (distant) Straw fortification (through service providers) Chopping (through service providers) HAY: Prodn. of surplus & conservn. (through service providers) Pulverisation (through service providers) Straw baling Surplus-Deficit linkage (local) Straw TMR pellets Surplus-Deficit linkage (distant) Dual purpose Food-Feed Crops
  9. 9. Participants Nationality India, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Australia Profile Economists, nutritionists, sociologists, development professionals, knowledge management specialists
