Purpose of program:

The purpose of the MIDD program is

to help diversify the national economy

  • Following National Dairy Forum Nov’10 and number of studies by WUR and SNV-BOAM program

  • Program funded bythe Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ethiopia

  • Implemented by Wageningen UR, SNV Ethiopia

  • Pre-program phase 2011

  • Main phase 2012-2016

Objectives of the program 2011-2016

Goal: To develop dairy value chains that sustainably contribute to income generation and food security.


  • To facilitate the development of dairy value chains in four areas (milk sheds) to increase the efficiency of chain operations.

  • To help create an enabling environment for dairy value chain development at regional and national level.

  • To develop the capacity of chain operators and chain enablers to contribute to sustainable value chains, with particular focus on entrepreneurship, leadership, innovation, and cooperation.

Phases of the program

  • Pre-phase 2011- Preparatory phase, studies and pilots

    • Pre-phase: 1-6-2011 till 1-3-2012

    • Implementation: Wageningen UR (Livestock Research, CDI and LEI) and SNV

  • Implementation phase: 2012-2016

Key approaches

  • Value chain approachin 4 areas

    • Integrated approach; production, collection, processing, marketing

    • 4 regions: 1st selection: Selale, Adama-Asella, Awassa-Shashemene, Bahir-Dar; coordinated with AGP and LGP

    • Appropriate mix of smallholder/large scale focus and public-private partnership focus

    • Innovation & learning at local and national level

      Strengthen linkages value chain - government - knowledge institutes

    • Milk shed innovation network - address issues at value chain level

    • National innovation network – address issues at national/institutional level

    • Supporting innovations by means of innovation fund

  • Emphasis on Capacity Development

Some activities 2011

  • Improvement of enabling environment (national level)

    • Assessments/studies technical/institutional issues: breeding, feeding, milk quality, dairy business hubs

    • Pilot farm advisory system for large scale farms
