Update on fish value chain development in Uganda

  1. 1. Update on fish value chain development in UgandaMalcolm Beveridge (WorldFish Center) CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish Planning meeting Nairobi, 27-29 September 2011
  2. 2. rationale - need • Africa: the aquaculture sector has the greatest need of support to develop at scale • two countries: focus, focus, focus … • screening criteria need – fish is a high proportion of total animal protein intake – national food and nutrition security assessments indicate current situation as ‘low’ or ‘at risk’ – baseline production indicates potential for effective intervention
  3. 3. rationale - potential Fish Consumption2 Undernourishment1 (% of total Animal Aquaculture Production3 Country (% of population <5) consumption) (tonnes in 2008) Egypt 31 38 693,815 Nigeria 41 45 143,207 Uganda 39 63 52,250 United Rep of Tanzania 44 65 11,308 Madagascar 53 33 11,081 Zambia 46 56 5,640 Ghana 29 74 5,594 Kenya 36 38 4,452 1Source: World Health Statistics (2010) 2Source: Speedy (2003). Global Production and Consumption of Animal Source Foods.

  4. 4. rationale - partnerships • in-line with national/ regional and international development agencies’ policies • NGO development partners have identified aquaculture value chains as fruitful areas for investment
  5. 5. rationale - opportunities for learning Uganda Egypt
  6. 6. Uganda – general vision and outcome General Vision • With partners, we will work to understand our chosen aquaculture value chains so that we can identify market-based interventions which, when implemented, can help develop efficient, pro-poor and sustainable value chains. Outcome • Increase supplies of affordable, nutritious food, generating equitable benefits to actors throughout the value chain.

  8. 8. Uganda – existing resource inventory • little engagement prior to 2010 – BMZ-funded project on governance of fisheries, Lake Victoria (2010-2013) August 2010 – CRP 3.7 • Step 1: selection of value chains • Step 2: mixed methods preliminary value chain analysis • Step 3: preliminary identification of constraints and opportunities
