Developing Sustainable Value Chains for Small-scale Livestock Producers


Add your own review!

Overview

This publication constitutes a practical tool for implementing the sustainable food value chain framework with a focus on small-scale livestock producers, targeting an audience of project design teams and policymakers. Small-scale livestock producers are important actors in food production, human health and management of landscapes and animal genetic resources. However, they face a number of challenges that hamper their productivity, access to market, and competitiveness vis-a-vis their larger counterparts. By integrating the concepts of value addition and the three dimensions of sustainability, the sustainable food value chain framework not only addresses questions concerning the competitiveness, inclusion and empowerment of small-scale producers, but also incorporates cross-cutting issues. These guidelines take the user through the different steps of value chain development, using concrete examples to highlight the particularities of the smallholder livestock sector, such as multi-functionality, specific production cycles or food safety issues.
