CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish: More meat, milk and fish, by and for the poor

  1. 1. More meat, milk and fish by and for the poor Our approach • A ‘solution-driven research with development’ whole value chain approach including producers, input and service providers, traders, processors, and consumers • A focus on a few selected livestock and fish value chains with poten=al for pro-­‐poor transforma=on to demonstrate impact • Working with development partners to use research to quickly design integrated interven=ons and generate evidence of their benefits for taking to scale • Basic and adap=ve research on animal health, feeds, gene=cs, gender and targe=ng priori=zed by the needs of the target value chain Opportuni)es for impact • Meat, milk and fish are among agricultural products with the highest value globally • Animal-­‐source foods provide cri=cal inputs to the health of malnourished people, especially women and children • Mee=ng the rapidly increasing demand for animal-­‐source foods in developing countries is an opportunity for the poor to earn a be>er living • Nearly 1 billion (70%) of the world’s 1.4 billion extremely poor people depend on livestock • 400 million people in Africa and South Asia depend on fish for most of their animal protein • 156 million landless people keep livestock • Two-­‐thirds of the world’s livestock keepers are rural women Focus This document is licensed for use under a Crea)ve Commons A9ribu)on-­‐Noncommercial-­‐Share Alike 3.0 Unported Licence September 2014 h9p://livestockfish.cgiar.org • Smallholder dairy in Tanzania, India and Nicaragua • Small and medium-­‐scale aquaculture in Egypt and Bangladesh • Smallholder pigs in Vietnam and Uganda • Smallholder goats and sheep in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso Meat, milk and fish are cri=cal to poor people as food and income. They provide cri=cal inputs in the diets of the poor, especially those who are malnourished. The Challenge: to ensure the poor can have be>er access to enough and affordable animal-­‐source foods as popula=ons increase, resources for producing them become more constrained and demand for these foods rises. Part of the solu=on will come from increased produc=vity in the small-­‐scale produc=on and marke=ng systems that many poor rely on for their animal-­‐source foods. We iden)fy opportuni)es to improve and transform these systems to be9er meet the needs of the poor. Key results • Progress in contribu=on to new technologies and improved prac=ces such as the release of new =lapia strains to be widely used in Asia • Deployment of vaccines against the major killers of ca>le in eastern and central Africa dairy value chains • Proof-­‐of-­‐concept in breeding of tropical pasture grass that can significantly suppress greenhouse-­‐gas emissions • Qualita=ve evidence demonstra=ng posi=ve benefits of dairying and improved milk safety in East Africa Overview
