Global View of School Feeding ► 368 million children in 169 countries receive food in school. ► Globally 1 in 3 children is not growing well due to malnutrition, 1 in 2 suffer from “hidden hunger” ► The numbers of obese children aged 5-19 have soared since the mid-1970s, rising by between 10- and 12-fold globally. ► School feeding is a good investment for a country – for every $1 spent, it is estimated that at least $3-10 is gained in economic returns, sometimes as much as $20.

  14. 14. Global View of School Milk ► 160 million children in 62 countries receive milk in schools. ► 200 ml is the most common portion size. ► Plain whole milk is most common, followed by plain semi- skimmed milk. ► Milk is provided for free or at a subsidized cost in the majority of programmes. ► The majority of respondents (83%) indicated that the programme focuses on improving child health and nutrition. ► Carton packages are used in most programmes (81%). ► UHT or long-life products are available in 73% of countries covered by the survey. ► In 2019, 68 million children in 56 countries received milk or other nutritious beverage in Tetra Pak packages in schools.

Together and livelihoods
  34. 34. Background Lusaka 39 • Dairy Association of Zambia (DAZ) is a member based organisation with direct memebrship of over 6,000 dairy farmers and more than 50,000 indirect beneficiaries. • DAZ organises Milk business around the Milk Collection Centre (MCC) – business hub. • Currently, DAZ manages about 67 MCCs country wide • The Sida funded DAZ to implement a digital pilot project – 2 years • It is implemented with 32 MCCs. • Target 2,600 direct beneficiaries and more than 15,000 indirect beneficiaries.
  35. 35. Background cont’d Lusaka 40 Overall objective of DIMS To improve the dairy production and productivity through a digital platform that will enhance commercialisation of the dairy value chain. Activities included; - baseline survey in MCCs - sensitisation meetings - Profiling of farmers, input suppliers, processors - facilitations of DIMS activities eg formation of savings groups, business trainings, dairy management trainings etc
  36. 36. Role of DAZ • Data Management and Coordination • Faciliatates linkages , • Training and senstisation, • Member mobilisation, • Lobby and Networking • Promotion of good governance amongst its members. Lusaka 41
  37. 37. Main challenges of the dairy sector in Zambia • Limited participation of women and youths • Low milk productivity and production • Poor quality of milk produced • High cost of production; • Poor record keeping • Limited access to regular extension services; • Limited to breeding stocks and AI services • Frequent animal disease outbreaks; • Limited access to inputs and credit facilities • Drought/ limited water sources • Limited private sector participants • Limited coordination among stakeholders. • Outbreak of COVID 19 • Internet problems Lusaka 42
  38. 38. Lusaka 43
  39. 39. Results attained Lusaka 44 • Data base of dairy farmers has been correctly captured including the milk production levels of each farm • Base on the information on the system, the DAZ extension staff can now easily make follow up on each farmer to address the issues of production and productivity • Extension messages and alerts are easily disseminated to the DAZ members at reduced costs and time (in some instances voice calls are sent. • The farmers have improved access to inputs such as medicines, feed etc which are now mostly supplied in bulk • Improved information delivery from MCC to farmers (Market, Extension and general MCC information) • Improved record keeping at MCC and farmer levels including at DAZ offices
  40. 40. Results attained Lusaka 45 • Improved transaction processes ( eg processor to farmer , farmer to input supplier. • Improved access to credit through introduced savings and credit groups and loan repayments done in instalments through the platform. • Recorded improvement of milk transactions along the value chain than before • New entrants on the value chain (input suppliers, women and youth) • Enhanced Governance within DAZ and MCC through trainings on governance and development of policies – Gender, Anti – corruption, Board Charter, Finance and HR. • Enhance human capital development in the use of ICT in the dairy sector
  41. 41. Performance of DIMS during COVID Lusaka 46 • Supply of milk to MCC was limited due to restriction of movement during the early stages of the outbreak – affected the entire value chain. • Thus technical extension messages were transmitted to the general membership (voice calls, and SMS) • COVID related sensitisation were easily transmitted to the members using the platform. • Youth in transport business (motor bike deliveries) made additional income as most farmers used them to avoid congestion at the MCC. • Transactions continued to be made using the system (even more appreciated by members) • Bulk demands for inputs were now more pronounced to the advantage of both the farmer and suppliers. • Other activities could not take place eg governance meetings at MCCs, face to face trainings etc
  42. 42. Lusaka 47 THANK YOU FOR LISTENING
  43. 43. • The world is currently off track to achieve the SDG targets for hunger and malnutrition • The number of people suffering from hunger has been slowly increasing since 2014. SDG 2End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture Agenda 2030
  44. 44. • 135 million people in need of acute food assistance. • 74 million food insecure people in conflict-affected areas. • 80 percent of humanitarian resources are allocated to conflict areas. 690million people or 1 in 9 of the world's population – suffered from hunger last year A global overview
  45. 45. • Refugees and internally displaced people are among the most vulnerable to shocks • More than half of the refugees are hosted in countries with high numbers of acute food-insecurity. 79million people displaced worldwide Displacement
  46. 46. • Conflict, economic crisis and climate-related shocks put pressure on already vulnerable communities. • In a worst case scenario, the pandemic threatens to almost double the number of acutely hungry people globally. 130million people in risk of falling into chronic hunger due to COVID-19 An additional COVID-19
