Strong collaboration established with other CGIAR Research Programs • Feeds assessment conducted using the Feed Assessment Tool (FEAST) tool • Feed innovation platforms initiated • Developed impact pathway for ‘Maziwa Zaidi’ over the next decade to:  Ensure common vision  encourage synergy among R&D partners in the dairy sector  avoid confusing stakeholders in the dairy value chain regarding which collaborative project they are interacting with Moving forward • Pilot dairy market hubs interventions with emphasis on provision of inputs and services on credit • The hubs, to be piloted through partnership with Heifer and SNV, will focus on ‘growing’ pre-commercial producers towards commercialisation • Establish and nurture innovation platforms linked to the dairy hubs • Conduct targeted research, linked to the dairy hubs and innovation platforms, to prove the concept that marginalized groups can be targeted successfully • Nurture partnerships within DDF • Engage MSc and PhD students in the research for capacity building Current status • Livestock contributes around 15% of agricultural GDP • Tanzania has the 3rd largest cattle herd in Africa comprised of predominantly low milk producing (1-2 litres/day) local East African Zebu • Low per capita milk availability (43kg/person/year) • Promoting feed innovations (MilkIT); IFAD • More milk in Tanzania (MoreMilkiT); Irish Aid • Safe Food Fair Food; BMZ/GIZ • Rapid integrated assessment of health and nutrition; ACIAR • Integrated Crops and Goat project; IDRC • What’s killing my cow; BMZ/GIZ • East Africa Dairy Development Phase 2; BMGF • Livestock data innovation; BMGF Projects Partnerships Strategic research partnerships • SUA and TALIRI • CIAT (tropical forages) Development partnerships • Servicing the system: Heifer and SNV • From the system: FAIDA MaLi Mechanisms for strengthening relationships • Dairy Development Forum • Local platforms Donors International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD); International Development Research Centre (IDRC); Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR); Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF); Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany (BMZ); Irish Aid
