  • The program will have as its centre three Research Themes.The three Research Themes are:1. Improved technologies to sustainably increase productivity and efficiency of livestock and fishproduction2. Development strategies for pro‐poor, gender‐equitable value chains for livestock and fish products3. Targeting, gender and impact assessment

Transcript

  • 1. CGIAR Livestock and Fish Research Program: Potential Synergies with LIVES project in Ethiopia Barbra Rischkowsky, ICARDA LIVES Research Planning Workshop Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 26-28 March 2013
  • 2. Program Goal More milk, meat and fish by and for the poor To sustainably increase the productivity of small- scale livestock and fish systems To increase the availability and affordability of animal-source foods for poor consumers and, To reduce poverty through greater participation by the poor along the whole value chains for animal-source foods.
  • 3. The approach: Solution-driven R4D to achieve impactWe propose an integrated value-chain approach for focused impact . . . R4D integrated to transform selected value chains for selected commodities in selected countries. Inputs & Services Production Processing Marketing Consumers Value chain development team + research partners
  • 4. Approach: Solution-driven R4D to achieve impact. . . combined with strategic cross-cutting platforms for scaling out. R4D integrated to transform selected value chains for selected commodities in selected countries. Consumers Major intervention with development partners Value chain development team + research partners Strategic Cross-cutting Platforms • Technology Generation • Market Innovation • Targeting & Impact INTERVENTIONS TO GLOBAL RESEARCH SCALE OUT REGIONALLY PUBLIC GOODS
  • 5. Delivering Livestock + FishStructure: Integrated research themes Targeting, Gender, Impact assessment Value chain development Technology Development: − Genetics Consumers − Feeds − Health Commodity X in Country Y Cross-cutting: M&E, communications, capacity building
  • 6. FOCUS: 9 Target Value Chains in 8 countries SHEEP & GOATS AQUACULTURE PIGS DAIRY
  • 7. Criteria and rationale for choosing the commodities and countries Growth and market opportunity • Huge and increasing demand for the commodity • High potential to raise productivity and off-take rate in smallholder flocks Pro-poor potential • High number of poor smallholders and value chain actors involved in production • Good income opportunity for women headed households Researchable supply constraints • Shortage and fluctuation of feed supply • Poor animal hygiene and diseases (high lamb/kid mortality) • Lack of sustainable organizational structures for breeder and producer groups • Poor market infrastructure and institutional arrangements
  • 8. Expected outputs from VCD in L&F Framework for situational analysis of the respective sectors Generic tools for rapid and in-depth VCA developed and tested for 3 commodities (dairy cattle, small ruminants and pigs) Tools for rapid integrated assessment of food safety and nutrition (in collaboration with CRP 4 Animal Health and Nutrition) Strategies for partnership development and involvement – innovation systems/platforms Strategies for outscaling developed (based on partnerships, targeting and impact assessment)
  • 9. Expected outputs from Technology Development  Open access databases (NIRS equations, feeds, successes and failures in technology development, AnGR)  Tools for rapid assessment of feeding systems and feed intervention screening (FEAST and TechFit)  Diagnostic toolkit for animal diseases  Demand-driven solutions for feeding, breeding and animal health constraints identified in the VCs  Vaccine development (PPR success story)  Insights in genetics of adaptation (long-term)
  • 10. Tanzania Dairy Cattle VC outputs in 2012 Formation of the Dairy Development Forum  an informal mechanism for vertical coordination of field activities and co-creating solutions at national and milk-shed levels  membership across all key public and private sector players in the dairy sector. Situational analysis report establishing a baseline for the sector Tools developed to identify potential interventions for improved dairy value chain performance Review of past successes and failures in dairy development interventions Potential interventions best bets for improved VC performance
  • 11. Ethiopia Sheep and goat VC outputs Toolkit for rapid VCA for sheep and goat in Ethiopia By mid April 2013 for seven sheep and goat VC sites: Site descriptions, rapid VCA reports, draft intervention plans Cross-cutting research issues identified and prioritized Process of partnership development with different stakeholders Pilot breeding programs for smallholders developed and implemented Feeding system assessments and feed intervention screening tested at two sites
  • 12. Selected sheep and goat VC sites in Ethiopia# VCs District Sites/villages/ Region Partner communities projectsHighlands1 Sheep 1 Atsbi 1. Habes Tigray LIVES 2.

  • 13. Identified constraints in Atsbi sheep Lack of awareness and skills on improved sheep production practices Feed shortage in quality and quantity and lack of planting material and forage seeds Unidentified and high incidence of disease and parasites Shortage of Animal health service delivery (drug supply, service availability, skills) Lack of vertical and horizontal linkages of sheep producers (missing linkage among producers and with other actors) Seasonality of supply of sheep Lack of supply of quality sheep: low dressing percentage, red offal often condemned due to disease and parasites
  • 14. Expectations from LIVES (synergies) Joint research and intervention plans for shared sites (Atsbi sheep VC) Joint learning across sites for sheep and goat value chains in Ethiopia and dairy cattle VC across countries (including IPMS results) Outscaling of successful interventions developed by L & F Joint development of technical training courses related to action research Dialogue on pathways to impact Joint Development of Monitoring and Evaluation Systems Joint development of Communication strategies
  • 15. CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish livestockfish.cgiar.org CGIAR is a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food secure future. The CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish aims to increase the productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems in sustainable ways, making meat, milk and fish more available and affordable across the developing world.
