  • 2. Context and objective
    Wageningen UR & SNV-Ethiopia; in close cooperation with EMDTI; on request of the Dutch Agricultural Counselor / Ministry of Agriculture, Nature & Food Quality
    Overall objective: To assess capacity development needs in the peri-urban commercial dairy chains
  • 3. Set-up of assessment
    identified CD needs at individual, organizational and institutional levels in dairy chains (“demand”);
    examined existing training capacity approaches currently followed to meet CD needs ("supply")
    identified gaps between supply and demand for CD services
    identified priorities for additional CD services and opportunities for cooperation
    Methods: interviews (47 chain actors/groups); literature study; validation workshops
  • 4. Capacity development – definitions used
    Capacity building (CB)
    individual level capacity development of knowledge and skills
    Organizational development (OD)
    organizational level capacity development of organizational competencies and strategies
    Institutional strengthening (IS)
    capacity development for a group of actors (like the dairy sector), mainly focusing on institutions (enabling environment, “rules of the game”, e.g. policies)
  • 5.
  • 6. Findings - Gaps between demand and supply
    Many chain actors have insufficientaccess to adequate CD services
    Gaps are leading to issuesin three areas:
    Profitability of production
    Quality of production
    Sustainabilityof production
  • 7. Recommended approaches (1)
    1. AGREE ON DIRECTION OF DEVELOPMENT:
    Continue transition to privatized market-oriented dairy value chains - “transformation from traditional to modern dairy business”
    encourage private investment in the sector to facilitate access to inputs; proper implementation of investment policy; provision of training on business management
    enhance public-private partnerships
  • 8. Recommended approaches (2)
    2. DEVELOP COOPERATION IN CHAIN
    Ensure strong leadership and cooperation in the value chain
    work towards formation of stakeholder platforms and apex organization like dairy council
    manage integrated CB approach at individual, organizational and institutional level
    enlist policy support for dairy infrastructure development
  • 9. Recommended approaches (3)
    3. STRENGTHEN CAPACITY BUILDERS
    Strengthen capacity of private and public CB service providers to provide good services in education, training, advisory services, extension to the chain.
    formal system–
    review of existing curricula with focus on management skills and value chain concepts;
    inclusion of practical technical skills for production, processing etc.
    non-formal system –
    increase and improve both public & private services;
    structure & certify short trainings;
    provision of advisory services
  • 10. Recommended approaches (4)
    4. BUILD CAPACITY TO PRODUCE QUALITY PRODUCTS
    Enhance the capacity of all value chain actors,
    enabling them to produce competitive dairy products
    Adequate dairy genetics
    Feedavailability
    Credit services& CBforbusiness management
    Milk quality control mechanism
