Initial discussions by livestock sector stakeholders in Ethiopia, under the new Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) project, have identified key technology delivery priorities for increasing the productivity and profitability of the small ruminant and poultry value chains in the country.
This study provides a gender analysis of animal health in small-scale dairy farming and the food security implications in three villages of Tanzania.
A series of briefs was recently published outlining the main priorities emerging from the Tanzania livestock master plan analysis:
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. It offers locally-specific information to improve chicken management and health across all scales of production. We hope that this guide assists those people responsible for chicken production in Ethiopia, including farmers, development agents and veterinarians, and enables enhanced productivity of the chickens and well-being for the people who rely on them.
A poster by scientists at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the Swedish Agriculture University (SLU) highlights the role of the livestock health flagship program in addressing health-related issues in selected value chains.
A recent study by Scientists at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) investigated the role of small ruminant production for food security and explored the different perspectives of men and women on the role of small ruminants in alleviating food insecurity.
