An ex-ante impact assessment was used to assess the impact of the ASF biocontrol and other interventions in peri-urban pig value chains in Uganda.
This guide from the Chicken Health for Development project provides an overview of chicken production and management in Ethiopia and of the health issues that impact productivity.
