Enhancing innovation capacity for sustainable Trypanosomosis control in Ghibe Valley, South West Ethiopia

  1. 1. ENHANCING INNOVATION CAPACITY FOR SUSTAINABLE TRYPANOSOMOSIS CONTROL IN GHIBE VALLEY, SOUTH WEST ETHIOPIA HISTORICAL CONTEXT 1986-1989 Research on productivity levels of trypano-sensitive animals and efficiency of available trypanocidals Does this research deal with livestock goods and bads and if so how? 1990-2003 The research aims to developing improved Research On how to control trypanosomosis in an area of high livestock health services delivery, to enhance drug resistance the contribution of livestock for poverty reduction in the valley. On the other hand, 2003-2006 the research could lead to change in ecology Research on how to translate the successful control trial into a sustainable mechanism for improved livestock health control due to increased settlement and bush clearance for crop production using draught Current Phase: 2007-2011 power Action research using the Asset based Community Development (ABCD) and the Innovation Systems (IS) approaches to derive lessons on Who are the “next users” of the research and 1. how to bring about sustainable improvements in livestock health service delivery in the project site how will they use the findings? 2. how to translate improved livestock health into increased productivity and incomes The results and lessons could be used by animal health departments of governments and, NARS to scale out community based tryps control to all tryps affected areas in Ethiopia and beyond Purpose: To strengthen local capacity for innovation in animal health systems in the Ghibe Valley IS ABCD 1.  Triggers of innovation 1.  History of positive examples/successes of 2.  Actors, Competences & Diversity of Functions community-driven/own development initiatives 3.  The underlying institutional context 2. Skill inventory & gap analysis 3. Natural/Physical resource mapping and analysis - Policies/Policy competences Analytical - Habits and Practices 4. Inventory of formal and informal associations; Elements - Pattern of Interaction roles and governance e.g. existence and adequacy 4. Complementary research and knowledge inputs of byelaws and enforcement 5. Complementary support and services 5. Local economic analysis : Income and expenditure 6. Characteristics of innovations that 1) to 5) lead to and flow analysis the usefulness of existing innovation activity 6.
