What we will cover
What we will cover security

  • What is APHLIS?

  • What does APHLIS offer?

  • Components of APHLIS

  • The downloadable calculator

  • New developments


What is APHLIS? security

  • APHLIS estimates the % postharvest weight loss of cereal grains in Sub-Saharan Africa. It -

  • Is based on a network of local experts who submit

  • data and verify loss estimates

  • Gives loss estimates by cereal, by country

  • and by province

  • Can be updated annually

  • Is full transparent for the method of calculation and

  • the data used, and

  • Can improve over time as better loss data can easily

  • be added to the system


What does APHLIS offer? security

  • APHLIS weight loss estimates can be used to -

  • Support agricultural policy formulation

  • Identify opportunities to improve value

  • chains

  • Improve food security (cereal supply estimates)

  • Monitor and evaluate loss reduction activities


Components of APHLIS security

Network of local experts

East and Southern Africa June 2008

to supply data and

verify PHL estimates

West and Central Africa April 2012


PHL database security

Network of local experts

  • Stores key data

    • Production/yield

    • Rainfall

    • Climatic extremes etc

  • Is accessible by network

  • Annual up-dates


PHL database security

PHL calculator

  • Estimates cumulative weight loss from production

  • Uses figures for loss from literature and from network

  • Network verifies loss estimates


Data security

The website security

  • Two ways to get PHL estimates

  • Consult the tables and/or maps on the website for losses by region, country or province

  • Download the PHL Calculator spreadsheet to enter user-preferred values for losses at a user defined geographical scale

Regional losses for all cereals and by cereal type

Click on one of these figures

to get details of the loss calculation

The downloadable calculator1
The downloadable calculator security

  • The downloadable calculator is available to give estimates at a scale below province.

  • Add your own data to the calculator easily

  • If you know the weights of threshed grain available the calculator can estimate grain production

  • Use the calculator to evaluate loss reductions in projects or to model ‘what if’ situations

Practical tips on loss reduction

New developments for APHLIS

Making a contribution to a new ‘Community of Practice’ by supplying -


Conclusions
Conclusions security

  • APHLIS is a network of local experts contributing postharvest weight loss data that are -

    • Transparent in the way they are calculated

    • Updated annually with the latest production figures

    • Based on the primary national unit (i.e. province)

    • Upgradeable as more loss data become available


Conclusions1
Conclusions security

  • APHLIScan help in -

    • Agricultural policy development

    • Identifying loss reduction priorities, and

    • Monitoring and evaluation of loss reduction projects


Conclusions2
Conclusions security

  • APHLIS is being developed to -

    • Provide information and advice on loss reduction, and

    • Contribute to a loss reduction ‘Community of Practice’
