Workshop: Value Chains - Animal Source Foods CRP1.3Presentation Transcript
WORKSHOP Animal Source Foods CRP: Ugandan and Egyptian value chains malcolmbeveridge WorldFish Center, Penang 18-22 July 2011
CRP 3.7 - goals increase production of affordable fish increased consumption better health outcomes among poor and vulnerable productive and profitable technologies that sustain ecosystem services increase employment and secure more equitable benefits throughout the value chain, especially for the poor and marginalized (women; youth)
CRP 3.7 – themes Technology Development delivers the productivity gains feeds; genetics; health; nutrition; environment Value Chain Development provides the demand-driven context for technologies partnerships; action research; capacity building; piloting interventions Targeting, Gender and Impact enables the processes and measures success governance; equitable share of benefits for women and vulnerable groups; monitoring and assessing impacts integrated organic fish and horticulture farm, Egypt
how the themes link platform research value-chain research targeting adaptive research Breeds Feeds M & E Health Nutrition process IPGs (action learning) technology IPGs
working with value chains in the animal source foods CRP
value chain research - our approach focus on a few aquaculture value chains Egypt Uganda help develop so that they function better competitive; efficient; pro-poor; equitable benefits create development impact Learn how scale out; M&E inputs and services transport and processing production marketing consumption
Uganda and aquaculture August 2010 Step 1: selection of value chains Step 2: mixed methods preliminary value chain analysis Step 3: preliminary identification of constraints and opportunities
Uganda - the aquaculture value chain Seed Feed Step 3: semi-structured interviews
what do the value chains look like and are they functioning well?
where are the key constraints?
are there barriers to women securing equitable employment benefits?
does an increase in aquaculture production increase fish consumption by the poor and improve health?
what interventions are most likely to deliver greatest impacts on poverty and hunger per sum invested?
Uganda – e.g. the seed value chain
Uganda – value chain development August – December 2011 with partners secured ASARECA* funding for more detailed VCA Steps 1-2: select and map VCs Step 3: identify market based solutions Step 4: assess market based solutions January 2012 – March 2014 Steps 5-6: implement interventions M & E refine approaches * Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in East and Central Africa
Uganda – value chain development funding is insufficient to match our objectives five grant proposals submitted more investment needed staff, expertise (VC) partnerships country presence review situation in 2012 source: http://livestockfish.wordpress.com/
Egyptian aquaculture 2009
15.4 kg fish person-1 y-1
8.5 kg fish person-1 y-1
75% of Africa’s
people thousand tonnes

Hatcheries Producers Fertiliser producers Traders Input Suppliers Transport Ice factories Plastics factory Other services (telephone, food, etc) Egypt – value chain development objectives produce more fish for the poor create employment for marginalized youth and women Direct and indirect aquaculture employment, Kafrel-Sheikh source: Finegold et al. (2009)
Egypt – producing more fish production increases must come largely from increased productivity - not from expanding farm area how? better - more profitable - technologies seed, feed and water better management capacity building numbers of producers productivity t ha-1
Egypt – increasing employment expand production profitability more productive technologies better management new product lines; new markets better trained (youth; women) stronger organizations improved value chain governance enabling policy environment
Egypt - funding Mobilize $7.1 million for next three years internal IMC, STDF, ARDF external bilateral donors (USAID, EC)
