    • Feed back and recommendations on how AASmight most effectively move forwardBy Emmanuel ZziwaCGIAR/NEPAD/FARA Workshop on AAS in Africa – Lusaka, Zambia 14th– 16thMay, 2013
    • ASARECA – Livestock & Fisheries Programme• Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research inEastern and Central Africa – est. 1994• Currently comprised of 11 member countries: Burundi,DRC, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda,S.Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda• ASARECA has 7 programmes: Staple crops, high value nonstaple crops, livestock and fisheries, agro-biodiversity andbiotechnology, natural resources management andbiodiversity, policy and advocacy and knowledgemanagement and sharing
    • The Livestock and Fisheries Programme• Four thematic areas of intervention:1. Improving livestock and fisheries productivity– 1.2 Enhancing utilization of feed and water resources– 1.4 Improving packaging and dissemination of technologies– 1.5 Increasing productivity of inland and marine fisheries2. Improving access to markets– 2.2 Market analysis to inform policy and investment options3. Improving value addition in input and output marketing chains– 3.1 Development of innovative technologies for value addition4. Improving sustainable interaction between livestock, fisheriesand the environment– 4.2 Development of sustainable crop-livestock-fisheries environmentinteractions for improved productivity
    • Moving AAS forward• Differing constraints to management of AAS(regional/country) hence need for scooping studies in differentregions/countries (i.e floods vs droughts)• Consideration for ITK as a basis to designing appropriatetechnologies for quick adoption (the what, why, when and howshould be answered before introducing new technologies)• Knowledge sharing – Strong engagement with existingregional and national organizations, government bodies andCBO’s (publications vs brochures and leaflets)• Integration of AAS components at farm level for improvedproduction and sustainability: crop-livestock-fisheriesintegration (not only as separate enterprises) – focus on smallscale aquaculture
    • Moving AAS forward…• Gender responsive agricultural technologies – developingcapacities in GTA• Considering simple demand driven technologies rather thancomplicated technologies• Market analysis: producing for the market to realize impact oftechnologies (which AAS products should be targeted)• Need for participatory research with farmers for increased adoptionof technologies• Translate lessons learnt elsewhere for scaling up and scaling outto other regions/countries• Community empowerment and resource mobilization – supportinginnovative community financing schemes
