ICRISAT-MIP

Activities 32-33 in SA, WCA, ESA

research questions
Research questions
  • Which upgrading options?
  • How inclusive?
  • How to empower women?
  • Revised proposal submitted January 2013
  • Second revision submitted July 2013
outputs achieved under activities 32 33 in sa
Outputs achieved under Activities 32-33 in SA
  • Value chain mapping surveys of ICRISAT’s mandate crops) in 6 states completed (2012)
    • Development and pretesting of survey instruments (2012)
    • Interviews with key value chain actors across commodities (2012)
  • Designed conjoint study to understand consumer preferences for RTU products of sorghum
  • Development survey instruments for the study
outputs achieved under activities 31 33 in wca
Outputs achieved under Activities 31-33 in WCA
  • Activity # 31 Assessing contractual preferences
    • Lessons learned from monitoring formal contracts between processors and grain producers already initiated under CRP 36 and CRP 35.
    • Stakeholder workshop to derive contract attributes in CRP2
    • Design of contract choice experiment based on attributes identified in CRP2
    • Survey instruments developed and validated in CRP2
  • Activity #32-33 Impact of Mechanization
    • SWOT analysis to identify constraints limiting the efficiency of groundnut value chain in Niger and upgrading options in CRP2
    • Multi-site randomized design with upgrading options as treatments to assess its impacts on women well-being in CRP2
outputs achieved under activities 32 33 in esa
Outputs achieved under Activities 32-33 in ESA
  • Inclusion, sorghum beer Kenya
    • Evaluation of three inclusive business models in ESA (2012)
    • Interviewed key value chain actors (Smart Logistics, EABL) (2012)
    • Grower survey Kitui district of 15 Smart Logistics groups, from 3 clusters with control group of growers from same locations. N=300 (June 2013).
  • Gender equity, groundnuts, Zambia
    • Analysis of baseline survey (2012)
    • Economic evaluation of groundnut shellers (2012)
    • Scoping studies (2012, 2013)
methodology development inclusiveness index sa
Methodology development:Inclusiveness index (SA)
  • Identify indicators for measure of inclusiveness
  • Design methodology to construct the index which include discriminant function/factor analysis/weighting methods
  • Application and validating the concept of inclusion
  • Identify factors that contribute to a more equitable index ie to move closer to equality
  • Frame strategies around the factors to improve income/livelihood of small scale producers
  • Applied to pearl millet for poultry feed value chain
methodology development wca
Methodology development, WCA

Example of contract choice card

methodology development comparing upgrading options wca
Methodology development: comparing upgrading options (WCA)
  • Identify upgrading options that reduce transaction costs along the groundnut value chain in Niger
  • Test various upgrading options as treatments or interventions using randomized or quasi experimental designs
  • Measure treatment effects
  • Measure and assess impacts on women’s income and labour use by using regression discontinuity, matching and double difference methods
methodology development gender equity toolbox esa
Methodology development:Gender Equity Toolbox (ESA)
  • Toolbox to promote gender equity in commercialisation of staple foodcrops
  • Gendered value chain mapping
  • Gendered activity profile for value chain functions
  • Gendered resource profile for value chain functions
  • Gender equity model to predict gender impacts of value chain upgrading (eg. machine shellers)
  • Applied to groundnuts in Zambia
linkages with other crps
Linkages with other CRPs
  • CRP 3.6 (sorghum RTU, pearl millet, sorghum beer)
  • CRP 3.5 (groundnuts)
next steps in sa
Next steps in SA
  • Organize brainstorm session to fine-tune list of indicators to measure inclusiveness and design methodology -2013
  • Application to two agricultural commodities (pearl millet and chickpea) in India-2013
  • Administer surveys to compile data-2014
  • Analyze data to understand factors that contribute to a more equitable index-2014
  • Propose suitable strategies to make value chain more inclusive-2014
  • Explore the possibility of validating the concept in other regions and other commodity CRP’s
next steps in wca
Next steps in WCA
  • Baseline study: August-December 2013
  • Monitoring of interventions: January-May 2014
  • Evaluation study: June-November 2014
next steps in esa
Next steps in ESA
  • Sorghum beer
    • Abstract accepted for EAAE Conference, September 2013
    • “Inclusion” re-conceptualised for SSA context (high levels of collective action, crop-specific gender roles, and FHHs)
    • “Inclusion” is determined by development process that varies by region
  • Gender equity toolbox
    • Stakeholder workshop for value chain mapping and identification of upgrading options (October 2013)
    • Design and implementation of gendered activity and resource profiles (by Dec 2013)
    • Testing of upgrading options (May-August 2014)
    • Development of household model for gender impacts
    • Evaluation of upgrading options using household model (by Dec 2014)
