Value chain development in the Livestock and Fish Research Program

  1. 1. Value Chain Development in the Livestock and Fish Research Program Tom Randolph (ILRI)CGIAR Livestock and Fish Value Chain Development Team Meeting ILRI, Nairobi, 5-8 March 2012
  2. 2. Meeting Objectives Develop common understanding of objectives and approach Review and refine the implementation plan, including individual roles and responsibilities, and agree on the timetable for 2012  Set the stage for more detailed planning Develop an initial toolkit for rapid value chain assessment
  3. 3. Update on the LaF CRP Preliminary planning meeting held Sept 2011 Officially started January 1st 2012 Planning still ongoing  Strategy logframe  Assigning resources  How many activities can be supported? Unrestricted portion fully funded (CG Fund) Large gap in restricted funded portion  will require major resource mobilization effort
  4. 4. Realtime Feedback Expectations? Section of whiteboard reserved for expectations not being met, complaints, suggestions, observations
  5. 5. More milk, meat, and fish by and for the poor Overview
  6. 6. Reminder: GoalMore milk, meat and fish by and for the poor To sustainably increase the productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems to increase the availability and affordability of animal-source foods for poor consumers and, in doing so, reduce poverty through greater participation by the poor along the whole value chains for animal-source foods.
  7. 7. Approach: Solution-driven R4D to achieve impactAddressing the whole value chain R4D integrated to transform selected value chains In targeted commodities and countries. Consumers Major intervention with development partners Value chain development team + research partners Strategic CRP 3.7 Cross-cutting Platforms • Technology Generation • Market Innovation • Targeting & Impact INTERVENTIONS TO GLOBAL RESEARCH SCALE OUT REGIONALLY PUBLIC GOODS
  8. 8. Working toward interventions for impact at scale Performance Target: double production in x poor households Scaling out Development Partners $90m Knowledge Partners $10m CRP3.7 Strategic Research $10mTime 10 years
  9. 9. Delivering CRP3.7 Livestock + FishStructure: Three integrated Components3 Targeting: Foresight, prioritization, gender, impact 2 Value chain development 1 Technology development: − Genetics Consumers − Feeds − Health Commodity X in Country Y Cross-cutting: M&E, communications, capacity building

  13. 13. A value A generic livestock value transactions, chain is the set of actors, chaininformation flows, and institutions that enable N Taylor value to be delivered to the customer (Baker 2007) 13
  14. 14. The VC Development Component What does the proposal describe? Role for partners? Links to other Components? Contradiction between focus and global public goods? Links to other CRPs (Policies; Ag Nutr Health)
  15. 15. The VC Development Component Card exercise 1. From your perspective, what are key principles that should characterize our approach in implementing the value chain development component?  3 cards – 1 principle per card 2. What is your main expectation from this workshop? (1 card)
  16. 16. Transforming a Value Chain Brainstorming exercise #1 What are the various dimensions of a value chain that need to be addressed to transform it to improve food security and reduce poverty? Which are the most important?
  17. 17. Transforming a Value Chain Brainstorming exercise #2 What mix of disciplines is required to address the various dimensions of transforming a value chain? How do they rank in terms of essential versus desirable? Delia to facilitate

  31. 31. The VC Development Component Visioning exercise Danilo: How would you see the implementation of this strategy for the smallholder pig value chain in Uganda? Rein, Malcolm: How about where activities are already on-going and more advanced – can it all be implemented? Parts?
  32. 32. Implications for M&E Beyond conventional research M&E, will it make sense to establish a framework for monitoring our progress in transforming each value chain? What would such a framework look like?

  34. 34. Objective of VC Assessment Characterize how value chain works (technical, economic, institutional) and the role of the various actors Identify constraints, inefficiencies and inequities Identify potential opportunities and strategies for pro-poor upgrading Requires many different perspectives  need to appreciate the different approaches used
  35. 35. Value Chain Assessment Comments from the various subject areas What have we heard in terms of alignment of issues, approaches? What degree of integration will be appropriate, feasible?
  36. 36. How do we work as a team? More milk, meat and fish by and for the poor Livestock and Fish CGIAR Research Program ILRI, Nairobi 5-8 March 2012
  37. 37. Let’s agree some principles Harmonized approach desirable? Subject focus vs site focus Level of interaction needed at VC level Relationship with VC coordinators Working across Centers/units Relationship with Component Leaders How we plan our activities Identifying priorities for resource mobilization (propose, identify pros/cons, vote)

  39. 39. Planning tasks Operation Plan  Initial basic logframe  Develop impact pathways  Extend time frame  More detail for 3-year period, value chains 2012 work plan & budget  Settle staff and restricted projects  Can unrestricted support activities?  Value chain planning meetings  Flexibility and adaptability! Emphasis on resource mobilization for priority activities
