In June, partners working on the Maziwa Zaidi dairy project in Tanzania agreed key aims and directions for the coming phase of the dairy value chain upgrading project (until the end of 2021). Coordinated by Amos Omore of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRi), the project contributes to an inclusive and sustainable development of the Tanzania dairy value chain.
In Zimbabwe, The ZimCLIFS project used innovation platforms to introduce better livestock feeds, improve market linkages for farmers to benefit from higher livestock productivity and to enhance knowledge and skills among support services enabling upscaling of the impacts of the integrated crop-livestock systems.
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:
Improved feed marketing system is critical for efficient milk production in Tanzania
Amos Omore reflects on the activities and results of Maziwa Zaidi dairy development activities in Tanzania
The vision of the Maziwa Zaidi Research for Development (R4D) program in Tanzania is to achieve an inclusive and sustainable development of the dairy value chain by 2023. This post is structured around the recent Maziwa Zaidi policy forum to highlight key policy relevant studies and evidence presented as posters in six thematic areas. Each identifies opportunities for inclusive investment and scaling that public and private sector organizations could exploit to grow the dairy sector and catalyze widespread innovation.
