Introduction to
Livestock and Irrigation Value chains for
Ethiopian Smallholders (LIVES) Project
Azage Tegegne
LIVES Research Planning Workshop
March 26-28, 2013
LIVES Project
• An ILRI research for development project implemented
with IWMI, MoA and EIAR in partnership with Amhara,
Tigray, Oromia and SNNP Regional States
• Supported for 6 years by a our development partner –
Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)
• Focuses on challenging high value, market-oriented
livestock and irrigated crop Commodities
WHY LIVES?
• In line with GoE – GTP aim of transforming subsistence to
more market oriented small holder agriculture.
• Potential for scaling out of piloted innovative approaches
and interventions in large scale development project
(HABP, AGP, LMDP, SLM)
• As seen in GTP and from the lesson learned by ILRI/IPMS
and IWMI, livestock and irrigated agriculture are high
value commodities with huge potential and promise to
transform smallholders from subsistence to marketorientation
Goal and Ultimate outcome
Goal
• To contribute to environmentally sustainable, enhanced income
and gender equitable wealth creation for smallholders and other
value chains actors through increased and sustained market-offtake of high value livestock and irrigated crop commodities.
Ultimate Outcome
• Increased economic well-being for male and female smallholder
producers in 30 districts in 10 target Zones in Amhara, Oromia,
Tigray, and SNNPR through the development of livestock and
irrigated value chains
LIVES Project Zones
Intermediate Outcomes
• Increased use of improved knowledge and capacity by
male and female livestock and irrigated agriculture value
chain actors and service providers to develop gender
sensitive and environmentally friendly sustainable
market-oriented livestock and irrigated value chains.
• Increased adoption of gender sensitive and
environmentally sustainable market-oriented value
chain interventions by male and female livestock and
irrigated agriculture value chain actors and service
providers.
LIVES Objectives
•
Introduction/adaptation of tested and new value chain interventions for
targeted value chains/areas (value chain development)
•
Capacity development of value chain actors, service providers and
educational institutions (capacity development)
•
Introduction/adaptation of tested and new knowledge management
interventions in support of value chain development (knowledge
management)
•
Generation and documentation of new knowledge on value chain
interventions through diagnosis, action and impact research studies (action
research)
•
Promotion of knowledge generated for scaling out beyond the project areas
(promotion for scaling out)
Project Focus
Commodities:
• Livestock (dairy, beef, sheep and goats, poultry,
apiculture) and high value irrigated crops
(vegetables, fruits, fodder)
Geographical:
• Ten (10) zones with clusters of Districts
producing selected commodities

What are the possible interventions?
• Technological: eg. seeds, animal genetics, drugs,
fertilizers, pumps, e-readers, computers
• Organizational: eg. organizational forms (public,
private, individual, cooperative, government, PLCs)
• Institutional: eg. rules & regulations, behavior, linkages
Capacity Development
Strengthening capacity public sector staff through
MSc/BSc education
In service training based on TOT/BDS approach: regional –
zone/district (eg)
 Rapid value chain assessment to identify potential interventions teams
 Participatory market oriented extension – extension staff
 Gender mainstreaming – extension staff
 Knowledge management – extension staff
 Results based monitoring – specialist staff
 Irrigation technologies – specialist staff
 Irrigated crop value chain development – specialist staff
 Livestock value chain development – specialist staff

Impact
Promotion for scaling up
• Facilitate project visits by key policy makers and donors
• Participation in government/non- government national, regional
learning platforms, conferences and workshops
• Use of mass media
• Publications
• Newsletters
• Promotional materials
• Leveraging new investment into value chain development.

Indirect beneficiaries
• Producers and service providers in AGP, HABP,
PSNP programs through (joint) capacity
development, field visits, learning events.
• Producers and service providers in adjoining
districts which form part of natural clusters –
milk shed, irrigation schemes and watersheds
through learning events, capacity development
and field visits.
Gender in VC development
• Greater involvement of women (female
headed HH, married women) in value chain
development
– Involvement in capacity development and
knowledge management activities
– Targeting women for commodities and specific vc
interventions
– Use of women friendly technologies (modern hives,
mechanized/conservation tillage)
– Women involvement in cooperative structure and
water user groups
Environment in VC development
• Integrated in knowledge capacity development
and knowledge management interventions
• Assessment of environmental impact and
mitigating measures and synergies –
highlighted in livestock and crop value chain
interventions
Project Management
• Coordinating Team – (MoA, EIAR, LIVES, IWMI)
• Steering Committee – (MoA, MoWE, EIAR, BoA,
BoWE, LA, LIVES, IWMI, CIDA)
• Regional Project Implementation Committee
(RPIC)
• Project staffing – HQ, Regional, Zonal
• Counterpart staff at Federal, Regional and Zonal
