Innovation Platforms for Value Chain Development: Experiences from Ghana and Burkina Faso

  1. 1. « Présence Globale, Impact Local » 36 pays SNV Siège 1970: La SNV s’installe au Burkina Faso 1
  2. 2. SCIENCE WEEK 3-5 july2012 Innovation Platforms for Value ChainDevelopment: Experiences from Ghana and Burkina Faso Presented by: Hubert W. SOME hsome@snvworld.org Balma Yakubu Issaka balma32@yahoo.com
  3. 3. OUTLINE1.Value chains Vs MSPs2.What is an innovative platform?3.Innovation Platforms & action research4.Challenges of IP implementation5.Postioning the Action Resaerch in the IP6.Way forward7.conclusion 3
  4. 4. What are Value Chains?• End market International Market• Vertical linkages Global markets• Horizontal linkages• Supporting products Domestic market & services• Business enabling Export Wholesale environnement Processing Supporting Products Services (finances, transport, training,etc) Producing Input supply 4
  5. 5. IP to create a logic change 5
  6. 6. What are Innovative plateforms?• Instruments that have emerged in response to growing body of “natural &/or traditionnal” relationship at local level Culture /• Community (with various actors) Spirituality set up relationship, developed tools, rooted in an understanding needs and willpower to engage Conservation gov‟t and other stakeholders to and secure community wellbeing Sustainable Use• Identify/Develop/adapt best fits to Natural Territory Resources address a number of key challenges 6
  7. 7. IP an other MSPHigh power Low power inequality inequality Negotiation (at best) DialogueMSPs in this context run MSPs in this context areinto problems: suitable:- Difficult to find common - Common goal is present, goal or is within reach- Conflicts hard to - Ingredients for learning manage among stakeholders are presentFacilitators at risk ofbecoming go-between Facilitators can concentratefactions; and take over on supporting dialogue,roles of stakeholders learning, innovation 7
  8. 8. Challenges of implementation of the IP a) Stakeholders are not convinced with the approach and are still in the old system b) The stakeholder have more demand out of communities capacities c) Needs are not clearly defined and agreed in the community d)Lack of willpower 8
  9. 9. Positioning IP in multi-stakeholder processes Mutistakeholders network Community researchersinternal on- traders R4D Action Research going processers Whole salerdialogues on IP BCP Participatory approch program Producer group Internal stakeholders No collaboration External stakeholders Collaboration (yet) as an MSP with as an MSP with external stakeholders MSP space to move from negotiation to external dialogue stakeholders Negotiation IPDialogues Conflicts over Value chains Ability to deal various interest more often on with power more often on the Ability for the right side dynamics will left side joint reduce conflicts Mediated learning High power power inequality inequality 9 Engaging with ABS will improve dialogue and get community willpower improved with VCD & IP
  10. 10. What is a community for the purposes of a IP? Community members have to be specialized in their Shared activity activities Each member has to focus on Collective Shared the relationship with others in decision values making the vertical line Community Commununities have to share same values: gender issues, governance, equity, su Common stainability cause 10
  11. 11. From the IP to the action research Implementing, Training on M&E Crop & livestocks’ VCD by ILRI• How can communities subsector gived by V2 VC selection by proposal (ILRI) (IP actors) be sure the actors (IP) that: Subsector Analysis by Programming at V2 EFFECTS a consultant (SNV) their needs are large scale level VCD VC analysiS by actors (IP) relevant Beneficiaries SNV Monitoring & their practices are Learning Evaluation alliances Commercially the best ones Viable solutions Upgrading strategies the best fits can framework and planing Upscalling improve crops and strategieS TRAINING livestocks production SNV Monitoring & Evaluation Action Recherche INERA/ARI 11
  12. 12. HOW V2 HAVE EXPERIMENT THIS MODEL OF IP 12
  13. 13. HOW TO ENSURE THAT IP FOR AR FACILITATES ABS & ACTORS LEARNING• What is the situation is V2: The process The outputs The outcomes The chalenges• Way forward 13
  14. 14. Key Questions How do we measure the performance of IPs and what factors influence this? How do IPs affect the performance of VCs? In which circumstances do IPs lead to more sustainable and equitable benefits for VC actors? How do the context and crop-livestock species/systems affect the functioning of the IPs and consequently, the VCs? What factors influence the sustainability/replicability of Ips? What are the implications of the above on project design and implementation? Which tools are affective for M&E of IPs and livestock VCs?
  15. 15. Role of the IP in Prioritizing the Action Research Issues• IP1: Value chain analysis and initial analysis of constraints• IP2: Further analysis of constraints with focus on rainwater management and related strategies• IP3(ARI): Development of Action Research Protocol• IP4: Review of the process and development of action plan for the season

  18. 18. Conclusion• IP provides a way forwards to improved agricultural production & livelihood through improve stakeholder participation in action research• Translating IP decisions into VC outcomes• Constraints along the VC are largely institutional rather than technical• IP has enhanced collaboration among actors• High expectation among IP participants• Sustainability  Active farmer participation vs Institutional „sluggishness‟  Organizational form: formal or informal
  19. 19. WAY FORWARD• The upcoming learning alliance is a means to resolving some of the capacity challenges• Analyse and address:  Actor willingness to participate in IP  Lack of capacity among actors in terms of means, knowledge, behaviour, and ability• Adopt strategies to deal with the high expectation generated by the project 19
