A sustainable livelihoods approach for the Africa-RISING ‘Quick Feed’ project in Ethiopia

  1. 1. A sustainable livelihoods approach for the Africa-RISING ‘Quick Feed’ project in Ethiopia Peter ThorneAfrica-RISING Quick Feed Project Inception Workshop, Addis 1 Ababa, 7-8 May 2012
  2. 2. Hypotheses Households stratified by livelihood endowments access and manage feed resources in different ways. More robust development outcomes will result from identifying practises that are transferable amongst strata and augmenting these with “external” innovations that target constraints and opportunities relevant to each stratum. 2
  3. 3. The proposed approach Community feed Household management livelihood Household feed inventorystratification management characterisation Wider adoption: constraints to & opportunities for … Innovation Analysis Identify complementary technologies Design follow-up activities 3
  4. 4. Sustainable livelihoods (SL) framework 4
  5. 5. 5
  6. 6. Small-scale commercial poultry Resource poor household 6
  7. 7. The proposed approach Community feed Household management livelihood Household feed inventorystratification management characterisation Wider adoption: constraints to & opportunities for … Innovation Analysis Identify complementary technologies Design follow-up activities 7
  8. 8. Household stratification By livelihood asset endowment Include vulnerability and risk 1. Community group discussions to identify community-specific livelihood indicators. 2. Household interviews to assess individual livelihood status against community indicators. 3. Analyse to identify key strata, differentiated on the basis of livelihood endowments 8
  9. 9. Why use SL for stratification?Don’t have to …Endogenous (if you do it properly)Rapid – Identification of indicators (1 day) – Household interviews (1 week)Broad-based and open-endedCan feed into feasible M & E 9
  10. 10. The proposed approach Community feed Household management livelihood Household feed inventorystratification management characterisation Wider adoption: constraints to & opportunities for … Innovation Analysis Identify complementary technologies Design follow-up activities 10
  11. 11. Community feed resources Develop a picture, across the community, of: – the range of available resources – access limitations and other constraints Use existing tools – FEAST, informal household survey? Independent of household stratification and conducted subsequently. 11
  12. 12. The proposed approach Community feed Household management livelihood Household feed inventorystratification management characterisation Wider adoption: constraints to & opportunities for … Innovation Analysis Identify complementary technologies Design follow-up activities 12
  13. 13. Household characterisationSelect representative households in each stratum.Identify feed access issues / feed management practices that are representative of each stratum.Household interviews – based around tools such as FEAST / Techfit? 13
  14. 14. The proposed approach Community feed Household management livelihood Household feed inventorystratification management characterisation Wider adoption: constraints to & opportunities for … Innovation Analysis Identify complementary technologies Design follow-up activities 14
  15. 15. Innovation Increasing access across strata Transferability of practices amongst strata Capitalising on existing opportunities Reducing risk and vulnerability associated with existing practises Identifying “external” technologies that genuinely strengthen existing practises. Strong participation can make this the first step in implementation 15
  16. 16. Discussion points Do we adopt this proposed approach? If so, how do we improve it? Who will do it? When? How many households for each stage of the analysis? How can we extend the livelihoods analysis to include vulnerability and risk? 16
