Introduction to Livestock and Irrigation Value chains for Ethiopian Smallholders (LIVES) Project

Zonal Workshop


Lives project
LIVES Project

  • An ILRI research for development project implemented with IWMI, MoA and EIAR in partnership with Amhara, Tigray, Oromia and SNNP Regional States

  • Supported by a our development partner – Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)

  • Focuses on challenging high value, market-oriented livestock and irrigated crops


Why lives
WHY LIVES?

  • In line with GoE – GTP aim of transforming subsistence to more market oriented small holder agriculture.

  • Potential for scaling out of piloted innovative approaches and interventions in large scale development project (HABP, AGP, SLM)

  • As seen in GTP and from the lesson learned by ILRI/IPMS and IWMI, livestock and irrigated agriculture are high value commodities with huge potential and promise to transform smallholders from subsistence to market-orientation


Goal and ultimate outcome
Goal and Ultimate outcome

Goal

  • To contribute to environmentally sustainable, enhanced income and gender equitable wealth creation for smallholders and other value chains actors through increased and sustained market-off-take of high value livestock and irrigated crop commodities.

    Ultimate Outcome

  • Increased economic well-being for male and female smallholder producers in 30 districts in 10 target Zones in Amhara, Oromia, Tigray, and SNNPR through the development of livestock and irrigated value chains



Intermediate outcomes
Intermediate Outcomes

  • Increased use of improved knowledge and capacity by male and female livestock and irrigated agriculture value chain actors and service providers to develop gender sensitive and environmentally friendly sustainable market-oriented livestock and irrigated value chains.

  • Increased adoption of gender sensitive and environmentally sustainable market-oriented value chain interventions by male and female livestock and irrigated agriculture value chain actors and service providers.


Lives objectives
LIVES Objectives

  • Introduction/adaptation of tested and new value chain interventions for targeted value chains/areas (value chain development)

  • Capacity development of value chain actors, service providers and educational institutions (capacity development)

  • Introduction/adaptation of tested and new knowledge management interventions in support of value chain development (knowledge management)

  • Generation and documentation of new knowledge on value chain interventions through diagnosis, action and impact research studies (action research)

  • Promotion of knowledge generated for scaling out beyond the project areas (promotion for scaling out)


Project focus
Project Focus

Commodities:

  • Livestock (dairy, beef, sheep and goats, poultry, apiculture) and high value irrigated crops (vegetables, fruits, fodder)

    Geographical:

  • Ten (10) zones with clusters of Districts producing selected commodities

Indirect beneficiaries
Indirect beneficiaries

  • Producers and service providers in AGP, HABP, PSNP programs through (joint) capacity development, field visits, learning events.

  • Producers and service providers in adjoining districts which form part of natural clusters – milk shed, irrigation schemes and watersheds through learning events, capacity development and field visits.


Gender in vc development
Gender in vc development

  • Greater involvement of women (female headed HH, married women) in value chain development

    • Involvement in capacity development and knowledge management activities

    • Targeting women for commodities and specific vc interventions

    • Use of women friendly technologies (modern hives, mechanized/conservation tillage)

    • Women involvement in cooperative structure and water user groups


Environment in vc development
Environment in vc development

  • Integrated in knowledge capacity development and knowledge management interventions

  • Assessment of environmental impact and mitigating measures and synergies – highlighted in livestock and crop value chain interventions


Project management
Project Management

  • Coordinating Team – (MoA, EIAR, LIVES, IWMI)

  • Steering Committee – (MoA, MoWE, EIAR, BoA, BoWE, LA, LIVES, IWMI, CIDA)
