Initial information on site selection for Uganda pig value chain projects

  1. 1. Initial information on site selection for Uganda pig value chain projects Emily Ouma More Pork by and for the Poor Project Inception and Planning Workshop, Mukono, Uganda, 27-28 May 2014
  2. 2. Site selection • Selection of potential sites for: – CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish. – Irish Aid funded Uganda smallholder pig project. • Process Step 1: Geographical targeting using GIS characterization. Step 2: Stakeholder consultation of step 1 and definition of “soft” criteria. Step 3: Minimum checklist to gather data for more specific site selection (counties and sub-counties). Step 4: Analysis of steps 1-3 and final site selection. • What is your contribution to this process? – Help us identify other non-GIS criteria for site selection (local knowledge). – Confirm whether the potential sites (GIS-characterisation and soft criteria ) are appropriate.
  3. 3. GIS Characterization • Based on 2 basic criteria: – Pig population density – Poverty levels • Targets 3 types of pig value chains: Rural – urban Peri-urban - urban Rural – rural  Largely determined by market accessibility.
  4. 4. Average herd density per district Pig density per district-overall Masaka Mukono Kayunga Mpigi Tororo Rakai Kumi Sironko Pig population density
  5. 5. Map A: Pig densities per district Pig density per district-cut off Rakai Lyantonde Kayunga Tororo Pig population density - cut off of 20 heads/Km2
  6. 6. Percentage of population living on less than 1.25$ per day Where are the poor?

  10. 10. Travel time (hrs) to nearest city with more than 50,000 persons Market access
  11. 11. Districts with high potential for selection- based on GIS characterization District Region Kayunga Central Mukono Central Bukedea Eastern Kumi Eastern Soroti Eastern Tororo Eastern Kasese Western Hoima Western Kibaale Western Kabarole Western
  12. 12. Other “soft criteria” for selection-not covered by spatial analysis District Region Comment Masaka Central Highest pig density in Uganda (>50 heads/km2) Kamuli Eastern Pig density (10- 20 heads/km2) Gulu Northern - ASF project - High pork consumption - Poverty Lira or Pader Northern - Source of pork for Gulu • Potential partnerships during RRA. • Others?
  13. 13. Potential districts – scoring exercise District Region Kayunga Central Mukono Central Masaka Central Bukedea Eastern Kumi Eastern Soroti Eastern Tororo Eastern Kamuli Eastern Kasese Western Hoima Western Kibaale Western Kabarole Western Gulu Northern Lira/Pader Northern
  14. 14. Activity • Define the “soft criteria” for site selection. • Propose list of eligible sites for the pig VC matching with agreed criteria (soft criteria and spatial analysis).
  15. 15. Next steps • Site scoping visits by end of June 2014. • Adaptation and implementation of toolkit for Rapid Value Chain Assessment (VCA) ready by end June 2014. • Conclusions on project sites – mid July • Baseline and diagnostic surveys at selected project sites: Aug – Sept 2014.
