Introducing the Livestock and Fish research program value chain assessment toolkit

  1. 1. Introducing the Livestock and Fish research program value chain assessment toolkit Epi Katjiuongua, Derek Baker, Froukje Kruijssen, Kate Longley, Isabelle Baltenweck, Emily Ouma, Jane Poole, Samuel Mbugua, Edna Mutua, Kathy Colverson, Michael Kidoido, Carlos Quiros, Emily Kerandi, Paula Kantor, Alessandra Galie Livestock and Fish Gender Working Group Workshop and Planning Meeting Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 14-18 October 2013
  2. 2. Value chain analysis and development Scoping Assessment Situational analysis Producer tools Scoping tool VC development M&E IA VC development facilitation guides Opinion leaders tool Site selection In-depth analysis M&E Producer benchmark GTA tools Other chain actor tools Technical assessment tools See: https://livestock-fish.wikispaces.com/VC_Toolkit other
  3. 3. Situational analysis • Purpose: Overview of VC environment (economic/ social/ policy/ structure), contextualize VC, identify potential challenges / opportunities in policy environment, partially informs site selection, focus on macro-level • How: Desk review, Key informant interviews, no specific tools provided, only report outline • How long: Initial: 2 months, Final: 3-6 months
  4. 4. Situational analysis cont’d Topics: • The product • Consumption and expenditures • Production • Imports and exports • Input & services: L&F health, L&F genetics, feeds, knowledge systems, credit • Value addition and marketing • Food safety • Competitiveness • VC governance • Externalities • L&F development strategies and activities • R&D partnership landscape • Current perspective on opportunities for pro-poor L&F value chain development R&D
  5. 5. Scoping tool • Purpose: Inform authorities about the project, get overview of VC (mapping/ actors), Defining broad intervention areas, Defining issues for VC assessment, Planning of VC assessment • What: 1)Interview checklist for small groups of districtlevel officials; producer association representatives; trader representatives; market agents; other KIs; 2) Checklist for use with individual consumers (10 min interview) • How Long: 1-2 day per VC domain per district
  6. 6. Value Chain Assessment (VCA) • Purpose: Analysis of the VC to define interventions • What: Modular approach, some core modules some choices, Both quantitative and qualitative information (but focus on qual.): 1. Village leader tool 2. Producer tool –1 day FGDs exercise at village level 3. Individual trader questionnaire 4. Individual retailer/processor questionnaire 5. Individual input supplier questionnaire 6. Individual consumer questionnaire • How long: 3-6 months
  7. 7. VCA: General / village leader level VCA sections Research question A. Village resource map B. Historical profile Context, infrastructure, access to resources and markets Context, trends in production, shocks, constraints
  8. 8. VCA: Producer level VCA sections Research question A. Livelihoods analysis Context, trends, VC performance: participation, financial (livelihood composition, relative contribution of L&F, farm/non-farm), constraints B. Seasonal calendar Context, risk, labour availability, constraints C. Gender roles (activity clock) Understand roles of sub-groups and opportunities to improve women’s roles, constraints D. Decision making Same E. Group membership / collective action VC governance and coordination (purpose of group membership, constraints to join groups)
  9. 9. VCA: Producer level cont’d VCA sections Research question F. Objectives for and VC performance in terms of objectives systems of L&F production G. Value chain mapping VC composition, supply-demand, inputs and services, seasonality, payment systems, constraints H. Feeds and feeding Describe systems, define constraints for technical interventions I. Breeding / seed input Describe systems, define constraints for technical interventions J. Constraints and solutions Best-bet interventions 11
  10. 10. Gender Transformative tools Sections Research question Gender norms How do gender norms affect VC opportunities and outcomes? Activity and time use Understand activities and time use of men and women Relationships wheel Understand how relationships between people and organizations affect VC outcomes Decision making and ownership Understand gendered patterns of decision making and ownership and link to VC outcomes Gender attitudes Quantitative questions to understand gender attitudes and effect on VC opportunities Envisioning change Workshop tool to share results and discuss gender-based constraints
  11. 11. VC benchmarking • Purpose: Benchmarking  Baseline for impact assessment at all actor levels and coordination in the VC including VC performance (both for pilot and large-scale development projects  sample size may differ across different projects) • What: Survey at several actor levels based on modular approach: Individual producer questionnaire The following are the same as for VC Assessment: a) Individual trader questionnaire. b) Individual retailer/processor questionnaire c) Individual input supplier questionnaire d) Individual consumer questionnaire • How long: Depends on the project and level of funding available
  12. 12. EXERCISE
  13. 13. Exercise Groups: 1. Value Chain Assessment tools 2. Gender Transformative tools 3. Benchmarking tools
  14. 14. Group work • We will provide you with a copy of a specific tool • In your group go through the tool and look at each question with the context of your L&F value chain in mind • Provide feedback on the tool in terms of its usefulness from a gender perspective • Answer the following questions (Use flip chart to capture responses and assign a rapporteur). From a gender perspective: – what did you like about the tool? – what changes/ additions might you recommend for the tool? – could you use this tool in your work?
  15. 15. CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish livestockfish.cgiar.org CGIAR is a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food secure future. The CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish aims to increase the productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems in sustainable ways, making meat, milk and fish more available and affordable across the developing world.
