Feeds and Forages Flagship: Initial ideas for integrated core project

  1. 1. Feeds and Forages Flagship: Initial ideas for Integrated Core Project Michael Peters, CIAT Livestock CRP Priority Countries Planning Meeting 26 – 27 March 2019 Nairobi, Kenya
  2. 2. What we have learned so far • Achievements & lessons for each priority country from Livestock & Fish – Ethiopia: Small ruminants important for Ethiopia; Engagement of youth – Tanzania: Dairy important for Tanzania; F&F work through project but could have advanced more. Forage seed available through private sector – Uganda: Pigs. Limited information on priorization of F&F inteventions. Forage seed available through private sector – Vietnam: Pigs limited on F&F. Cattle systems likely more clear entry point • Do we know enough to contribute our part to an integrated intervention? - Ethiopia: Partly. as value chain is advanced and there is a Livestock Sector analysis; Need to prioritize Feeds and Forages - Tanzania: Partly. Need to prioritize best interventions and more clarity on potential for Zebu cattle - Uganda: Limited. Need to prioritize what Feeds and Forages pigs - Vietnam: More clear on pigs. But diagnostic work on cattle systems
  3. 3. What our contribution to an integrated intervention could look like for each country • Ethiopia: – Focus of our component: Scaling Feeds and Forages including forage seed system; Feed utilization and conservation. Feed supply/demand analysis and priorization of feed interventions. Barley and forage legumes – Target population: Sheep farmers (20,000?) in semi-arid and arid environments • Tanzania: – Focus of our component: Scaling Feeds and Forages, Fodder markets. Improved grasses and legumes and link with private sector. Attention to environmental issues e.g. GHG – Target population: 20,000 farmers, mainly dairy • Uganda: – Focus of our component: Food-Feed crops for pigs. But also forages for cattle. Feed utilization – Target population: pig and cattle farmers • Vietnam: – Focus of our component: Assessment of feed options. Feeds/forages-Environment and Animal Health nexus. Modeling of interventions – Target population: ??? Diagnosis to be done
  4. 4. How these activities fit into the flagship • Alignment to CoA and outcomes – Ethiopia: Across clusters. 1. Gendered Feast; 2. Barley and feed legumes; 3. Utilization; 4 scaling – Tanzania: 1. Innovation systems; 2. improved forages; 3. Feed utilization and environmental assessment; 4. Scaling including private sector – Uganda: 2. Feeds and Forages options; 4. Scaling – Vietnam: 1. Innovation systems; 2. Defining priority Feed and Forage options; 3. environmental and Health assessment; 4. initiating scaling • Key challenges from a flagship perspective – Uganda: Many F&F rather for cattle – Vietnam: Diagnosis needed. Transition from Pigs to cattle systems. Intensifying linkages with other flagships e.g. Animal Health and Livestock and Environment. Time short
