Potential livestock research areas in the LIVES project

  1. 1. Potential Livestock Research Areas in (LIVES) Project Azage Tegegne LIVES Research Planning Workshop Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 26-28 March 2013
  2. 2. Why research?• To create knowledge on project’s livestock interventions – To feed into the learning activities in the project areas. – To disseminate the knowledge for scaling out beyond the project areas.
  3. 3. Livestock research focus areas• Gaps in knowledge in proposed livestock value chain system in the 10 Zones• Value chain interventions (gender sensitive)• Extension (knowledge management, capacity development) interventions (gender sensitive)
  4. 4. Potential livestock research categories• Diagnostic research• Action research• Impact research(all gender sensitive with gender disaggregated data)
  5. 5. Diagnostic dairy research• Rapid assessment butter market channels and consumers• Assessment on-farm butter processing systems• Assessment fertility management dairy cows• Assessment feeding practices dairy animals in peri-urban and rural system• Assessment fluid milk/butter quality at different stages of the value chain• Rapid assessment/action planning communal grazing area development• Access to knowledge/skills development peri-urban and rural dairy production for male, female and youth farmers
  6. 6. Action research dairy• Innovation history of dairy value chain development• Cost benefit analysis of selected dairy production interventions in peri-urban and rural system• Studies on mass insemination program vis a vis other institutional approaches• Studies on communal grazing area development• Studies on forage seed multiplication system• Different institutional arrangements for dairy processing in peri-urban fluid milk system/rural butter system• Assessment dairy specific knowledge/capacity interventions, including dairy platforms
  7. 7. Diagnostic research small/large ruminants• Rapid assessment supply channels for fattening small and large ruminants• Assessment small ruminants diseases and mortality• Assessment feeding practices small and large ruminants at different growth stages• Rapid assessment/action planning communal grazing area development• Rapid assessment/action planning community based sheep breeding program• Assessment/action planning meat quality in local butcheries and abattoirs• Access to knowledge/skills development small/large ruminants production by male, female and youth
  8. 8. Action research small/large ruminants• Innovation history of small/large ruminants value chain development• Cost benefit analysis improved fattening small/large ruminants• Forage seed multiplication system (FTCs and private)• Studies on effectiveness community based sheep breeding programs• Studies on effectiveness thermo stable PPR distribution system• Studies on fattening specific knowledge/capacity interventions including fattening platforms
  9. 9. Diagnostic research poultry• Rapid assessment egg and poultry market channels/consumers• Assessment chicken diseases and mortality• Assessment feeding practices by peri-urban and rural poultry producers• Access to knowledge/skills development on poultry production by urban and peri-urban male, female and youth
  10. 10. Action research poultry• Innovation history of poultry value chain development• Cost benefit analysis poultry production interventions for peri-urban and rural poultry production• Studies on different institutional arrangements for pullet production system• Studies on different institutional arrangement for health service delivery• Studies on poultry specific knowledge/capacity interventions including poultry platforms
  11. 11. Diagnostic research apiculture• Rapid assessment of raw and clear honey market channels/consumers• Assessment bee colony supply channels and acquisition• Assessment bee feeding/sources over the year• Access to knowledge/skills development apiculture production by urban and peri- urban male, female and youth
  12. 12. Action research apiculture• Innovation history of apiculture value chain development• Cost benefit analysis apiculture production interventions• Studies on bee colony multiplication system• Studies on different institutional arrangements small scale honey processing• Studies on apiculture specific knowledge an capacity interventions, including apiculture platforms
  13. 13. Livestock impact research• Double difference and other studies – Dairy value chain – Small/large ruminants value chain – Poultry value chain – Apiculture value chain
  14. 14. Research outputs• Location specific and synthesized diagnostic findings• Location specific and synthesized livestock interventions• Location specific and synthesized livestock specific extension interventions• Location specific and synthesized livestock impact studies

  16. 16. Prioritization research locations• Importance of a commodity between zones – based on number HHs involved• Importance of the commodity within a zone – based on number of HHs involved• Sites with high scores on both criteria considered first
