Perspectives on innovation adoption (Poultry)

  1. 1. Perspectives on innovation adoption (Poultry) Samuel ‘Niyi Adediran (PhD), Coordinator TAAT Livestock Compact, ILRI TAAT Small Ruminants Value Chain Inception Meeting, ILRI Addis, 22 June 2018
  2. 2. Overview Diverse Innovations in Livestock value chains Innovation adoption Theory Approaches to adoption Conclusions
  3. 3. Diverse Livestock Technologies Alternative protein sources – Moringa, Urea treated Feed conservation – Hay, Silage Concentrates Combo vaccines & health products (PPR-SGP, ND-Fowl pox etc. Thermo-tolerant vaccines Maize for food and feed Energy Biogas
  4. 4. Innovation adoption pathways • Diffusion Process Beal et al. (1957) • Crossing the Chasm G. Moore (1991) • Normalisation Process theory (Medical sociology) Carl May.
  5. 5. Adoptable Innovations Some attributes of easily adoptable Technologies  Affordable  Decomposable  Provides added value  Directly usable by adopters  Experimental
  6. 6. Approaches to stimulate livestock innovations
  7. 7. Livestock innovations - Physiology • Improve genetics – Breeding, inclusive approach, etc. • Nutrition - fodder and animals for drought resilience. • Animal health - Thermo-tolerant & Combo vaccines
  8. 8. Livestock innovations – production Systems • Responsible Intensification. • Synergies across value chains – fodder seeds, fertilizer, nutrition, management-Housing, product processing, packaging and techniques. • Access to credits and markets. • Youths and Entrepreneurship
  9. 9. Innovation through institutions • Enabling policy environment • Public private partnerships • Leverage technologies (ICT) • Promote Innovation platforms.
  10. 10. Conclusion: Innovation adoption stimulants  Leveraging resource use among partner institutions  Active Public Private Partnership  Improve market and credit access for value addition  Improve Policy environment.  More $$$$$ in farmers pockets

  12. 12. Partnerships that works A Partnership is likely to be ineffective if…  Partners do not share the same values and interests. This can make agreements on partnership goals difficult.  There is no sharing of risk, responsibility, accountability or benefits.  The inequalities in partners’ resources and expertise determine their relative influence in the partnership’s decision making.  One person or partner has all the power and/or drives the process.  There is a hidden motivation which is not declared to all partners.  The partnership was established just to “keep up appearances’’.  Partnership members do not have the training to identify issues or resolve internal conflicts.  Partners are not chosen carefully, particularly if it is difficult to “de-partner”.
