Baseline activities and data management for the African Chicken Genetic Gains program

  1. 1. Baseline activities and data management for the African Chicken Genetic Gains program Jane Poole and Absolomon Kihara (ILRI) First ACGG Program Management Team meeting, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 18-20 May 2015
  2. 2. ACGG Baseline – Objectives / Purpose • The main Objective / Purpose of our ACGG baseline activities is to establish our ‘starting point’ before implementing project activities – establishing the current levels of key project indicators that relate to: monitoring project progress and help to guide project activities and interventions (e.g. on-station testing and on-farm monitoring). – Deciding at what level / in what format to collect the data (e.g. household, community)
  3. 3. ACGG Baseline – Indicators Indicator Potential productivity Improved Genetics and reproduction Genetic gain (for milk, eggs and meat) Outcome TBD Milk yield as a function of best available breed Outcome TBD Egg yield as a function of best available breed Outcome TBD Poultry meat yield as a function of best available breed Outcome TBD RealizedProductivity Animal health systems % of smallholder farmers using animal health products Outcome HH surveys % of smallholder farmers using vaccination for [ECF, Newcastle Disease] Outcome HH surveys Mortalityrate due to disease Outcome HH surveys OIE PVS scores Outcome OIE Animal genetic systems % of farmers owning improved breeds (of poultry, dairy cattle) Outcome HH surveys % of dairy farmers using artificial insemination Outcome HH surveys Livestock production mgmt % of improved/crossbred dairy and poultry animals in smallholder farmer-owned herds Outcome HH surveys % of smallholder farmers using housing for poultry Outcome HH surveys % of smallholder farmers using supplemental feed/fodder practices Outcome HH surveys Productivity(eggs per animal, by breed) Impact HH surveys Productivity(milk per animal, by breed) Impact HH surveys Household production (eggs per household) Impact HH surveys Household production (poultry, small ruminant meat per household) Impact HH surveys Household production (milkper household) Impact HH surveys Knowledge exchange % of smallholder farmers with access to extension services(ICT, radio, extension agent) Outcome HH surveys Postproduction losses (milk, eggs, meat) Outcome HH surveys RealizedValue Total livestock holding (by species), disaggregated by sex of owner Impact HH surveys Per capita annual HHincome – livestock ($US), disaggregated by sex of earner Impact HH surveys Mean household asset score, (livestock, productive, etc.) disaggregated by sex of owner Impact HH surveys Annual net cash income frompoultry Impact HH surveys Annual net cash income fromdairy Impact HH surveys Annual net cash income fromsmallruminants Impact HH surveys Consumption of livestockproducts (frompoultry, dairy, small ruminants) Impact HH surveys
  4. 4. ACGG Baseline - Activities • Community level surveys (Focus Group Discussions, FGDs) • Household level producer surveys • Other value-chain actor surveys (e.g. traders, feed suppliers etc.) • Key Informant Interviews
  5. 5. ACGG Baseline – Activities cont’d • What do we need for each activity? – Sampling plan (linked across activities) – Data management plan (linked across activities) – Tools: questionnaires, interview questions, group work materials, facilitation methods – Hardware to complete the activity (i.e. tablets) – Resources & logistics (e.g. enumerators and field supervisors, transport etc.) • A lot of this has already been thought through by the country teams and documented
  6. 6. • Where? – Which area and communities to include in the survey (target population), stratification &/or clustering of households, logistics & resources • Who? – Chicken producers with at least 2 – 3 years experience keeping poultry, how many? how selected? • How & What? – Survey tool covering a range of issues relating to chicken keeping and capturing data needed to establish baseline levels for key project indicators…. ACGG Baseline – Household level survey
  7. 7. • Key aspect – Single tool for ALL countries • Topics to cover in household level survey: – Poultry production – Poultry productivity – Income from poultry & poultry products – Household Dynamics & Gender – Food Security & Nutrition: Social aspects of poultry keeping (mostly covered in FGDs) – Training & extension, access to credit, group membership – General household information ACGG Baseline – Household level survey: How? & What?
  8. 8. • Identifying the key project indicators – results framework, country-specific interest areas (e.g. 4 – 5 indicators from each) • Tool development, including the data collection software (ODK) from now until end of June • Testing the tool & training enumerators; then initiation of surveys (July / August) ACGG Baseline – Household level survey: Process & Timelines
  9. 9. Project components • Baseline • Longitudinal /On farm • On station • Focus Group Discussion (FGDs) ACGG Data Management
