  • Update on dairy value chain development in Nicaragua and Honduras

    1. 1. Update on dairy value chaindevelopment in Nicaragua and Honduras Michael Peters and Rein van der Hoek (CIAT) CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish Planning Meeting ILRI Nairobi 27-29 September 2011
    2. 2. Why? Dairy products important dietary component across social strata Consumption growth rates 6.7/11.7% Honduras/ Nicaragua Per capita consumption low (100 kg milk equivalent/year) Urbanization/population growth, 56 million people, 40% in cities in 2030 400,000 small scale livestock producers in Central America (1/2 Honduras/Nicaragua), 75% of income from milk sales Dairy sector 2nd fastest growing livestock sub-sector in region Growing diversity of consumer preferences > opportunity for small industries to enter into market niches
    3. 3. Limitations Poor quality and productivity (5 to 10 milking cows, 30 animals per farm, 3 to 5 l milk/cow/day) Strong seasonal variation of production and prices Market linkages and organizational capacity weak Lack of information and technology Lack of quality based incentive systems Lack of integration with formal sector
    4. 4. Projects and capacities to build on: Projects CFC ‘Enhancing Beef Productivity, Quality, Safety, and Trade in Central America’ ILRI/CIAT ‘Value chain focus and targeted interventions can be effective in generating benefits to small cattle producers, but best opportunities for dairy production’ Tropileche ILRI/CIAT Technology driven projects
    5. 5. Projects and capacities to build on: Partners Long term presence in region/staff placed in Managua, expertise in forages/feeds and value chains Old and new partners NARS, INTA,DICTA, CATIE, Universities in region, international NGOs such as CRS, local and regional NGOs (SERTEDESO, SIDE, FIPAH) Link with private seed sector
    6. 6. Projects and capacities to build on: Improved forages, processing, working with farmers Highly productive forages with adaptation to drought and/or water-logging Forage conservation technologies directed at smallholders Farmer based seed supply and concentrate production Experience with value chain work in Central America Working with farmers
    7. 7. Engagement as part of CRP Communication with old (NARS, SIDE) and new partners (CRS), Side and CATIE were part of consultation on priority themes and priority regions (link with CRP 1.2, see also next 2 slides) Need for additional expertise in M&E and gender analysis (through CRP); Animal health (but focus is on service provision
    8. 8. Drought prone areas in Central America < 4 dry months 4-6 dry months > 6 dry months sequía Drought prone Fuente: FAO, 2002
    9. 9. Priority regions Nicaragua Las Segovias Matagalpa Chinandega León Carazo Raan Honduras Yoro (Centro - Norte)
    10. 10. Entry points to enhance smallholder dairyproduction: Overcoming production, supply and market constraints Production: Enhancing dairy productivity and quality Supply: Overcoming seasonal variation and improving quality and hygiene Market/Institutions: Responding to increasingly stringent food safety standards for internal and external markets (trade liberalization and urbanization) Other considerations: Social justice (gender, value chain equity), ecological footprint and market differentiation
    11. 11. Planned activities: Overcoming the constraints Improved forage, pasture and silvopastoral systems for higher productivity and seasonal stability Improving milk quality/hygiene through better processing techniques Value chain analysis focusing on improving economic conditions at producer level Facilitating integration of informal stakeholders (small farmers, processors and traders) to more dynamic, differentiated markets Enhancement of partnerships around specific market opportunities for the establishment of business models Capacity building including technological innovation, farm management and linkage with service providers and industry Emphasizing the concept of eco-efficiency
    12. 12. Outcome pathwaycertifications of private aninal health services/small holder Social justice along value chain; ecological sustainability Outcome: Actor(s) Increased competitiveness of informalChanges enabling environment: Recognition of actors in dairy value chains Marketing: Link smallholders with formal markets, year round availability of Research: SIDE;CATIE; Supporting: devlopment; differentiated high quality dairy products NARS Associations Transport and processing: Provide Supporting Research: consumers year round with high quality SIDE, CATIE Supporting: NARS, dairy producs: traceability systems Development Farm and community level - Improvedproduction productivity, milk quality and hygiene, efficient input services, strengthen local Research: NARS;SIDE; Supporting: Developmen; dairy clusters, seed supply systems CATIE Association;NGOS
    13. 13. Gaps Adoption of forage grasses in LAC will happen, but M&E and gender analysis to strengthen Regional focus of private sector seed partner Integrated analysis and innovation of value chains Secured funding for working with partners, operations and staffResource mobilization: Proposal CFC – advanced to Project pipeline Collaboration CRS – link with long term initiatives for improved livelihoods, food security and NRM
