Livestock production systems in Zimbabwe: Project overview

  1. 1. Livestock Production Systems in Zimbabwe (LIPS-Zim) project overview Sikhalazo Dube Project Coordinator, LIPS-Zim, ILRI LIPS-Zim virtual inception workshop, 19 May 2020 Better lives through livestock
  2. 2. 2 Project overview Livestock production systems in Zimbabwe (LIPS-ZIM) is a four-year (Jan 2020 – Dec 2023) project, funded by the European Union, that aims to increase livestock productivity in Zimbabwe by promoting increased adoption of climate relevant innovations in livestock-based production systems and improved surveillance and control of livestock diseases. Implementing partners Key partners
  3. 3. 3 Project overview Sites (Zimbabwe’s agro-ecological regions IV and V) • Matabeleland South – Beitbridge, Gwanda • Matabeleland North – Hwange, Nkayi, Gokwe North • Masvingo – Chiredzi • Manicaland – Buhera • Mashonaland East – Mutokox
  4. 4. 4 The overall objective is to improve productivity and climate relevance of livestock-based production systems in region IV and V of Zimbabwe. • Increased adoption of climate relevant innovations in livestock-based production systems and • Improved surveillance and control of livestock diseases. Project objectives
  5. 5. 5 Specific objective 1 Increased adoption of climate relevant innovations (e.g., feeding) in livestock-based production systems. Indicators • Percentage of targeted farmers participating in fodder and feed interventions • Number of innovations: a) promoted; and b) adopted • Demand for feed in targeted areas disaggregated by age and sex of farmer • Demand for fodder in targeted areas disaggregated by age and sex of farmer
  6. 6. 6 Specific objective 1 Activities • Activities • Situation analyses: Overlay with existing research projects, history of previous activities and outcomes, data consolidation • Feed and forage evaluation and analyses: Inventory of existing crop and fodder varieties and available germplasm, rangeland resources, supplementary protein, indigenous and scientific knowledge (FEAST-ILRI) • Landscape assessments: Seasonal variation in biomass availability and quality, water resources and management, prices for grain, biomass and livestock • Farming systems typologies: Land use, livestock populations, distribution of herd ownership • Climate information analyses and advice for decision making (FAO, existing tools) Output 1.1 Climate adapted and cost- efficient production, marketing and investment practices and innovations for livestock production systems in Zimbabwe’s agro-ecological Regions IV and V are selected based on scientific evidence.
  7. 7. 7 Specific objective 1 Activities • Activities • Adoption of fodder technologies: Behaviour change, incentives, aspirations • Identify and test best bet feed and forage innovation: Crop and fodder variety and livestock breed genetic improvement • Feed and fodder value addition: mechanized processing, storage, conservation • Feed and fodder standards: quality and safety testing • Crop livestock integration: Feed and fodder with - poultry / ruminants, - poultry / fish • Land use planning: Community based natural resource management, integrating the use of cropland, fallow, irrigation schemes, rangelands Output 1.2 Animal husbandry and related practices, technologies and innovations are tested, evaluated, integrated and out-scaled in production systems in NR IV and V.
  8. 8. 8 Specific objective 1 Activities • Impacts and outcomes: Resilience, profitability and nutrition • Demand and supply analyses: Capacity of markets to absorb livestock and feed production, by livestock type and product quality • Facilitating market linkages producers – off-takers: creating space for small scale farmers • Models for value chain integration: livestock – feed and fodder – seed markets and community-based seed multiplication through partnerships with the private sector • Decentralized feed and fodder processing businesses enterprises Output 1.3 Inclusive market systems in NR IV and V developed and capacitated to out-scale the adoption of tested and evaluated technologies and innovations.
  9. 9. 9 Specific objective 2 Improved surveillance and control of livestock diseases Indicators • % decrease in livestock mortality by cause within target locations • % decrease in priority disease burden by cause within target locations • % of livestock disease outbreaks per year responded to within the stipulated time according to national policy and standards (e.g., 48 hours) disaggregated by cause of the disease • # of priority livestock diseases for which an approved surveillance plan is (a) in place, and (b) operationalised • % of data points in the syndromic surveillance system capable of detecting disease characteristics submitting data in real-time to the central level for analysis and reporting • Cost-effectiveness of surveillance systems • Monetary value of resources mobilised for surveillance per year (USD) • Qualitative improvements in disease detection, surveillance and control systems
  10. 10. 10 Specific objective 2 Activities • Research/investigation of vector (tse-tse, ticks, mosquitoes) distribution • Research/Investigation of prevalence of priority diseases • Modelling of impact of climate change on vector and disease distribution (based on historical and current data) • Research the presence of reservoir species for priority diseases at the wildlife /human interface • Development of a community-based approach to integrate indigenous knowledge Output 2.1 Knowledge of the linkage between climate change and distribution of vectors and disease outbreaks increased
  11. 11. 11 Specific objective 2 Activities • Description and assessment of the current surveillance and response system and identification of gaps • Development and adoption of appropriate tools (existing and innovative) and programs to enhance surveillance and rapid response • Enhance diagnostic capacity for early detection (central and decentralized) (including linkage with private stakeholders) • Training for participatory surveillance • Improve capacity for data analysis and management Output 2.2 Capacity for surveillance, early detection and rapid response of emerging and re- emerging diseases strengthened.
  12. 12. 12 Specific objective 2 Activities • Identify gaps for control and prioritize interventions • Develop mechanisms for sustainable resource mobilization for control of key diseases (including economic analysis) • Evaluate vaccine efficiency for key diseases • Developing cost efficient vector control and disease prevention systems (including traditional knowledge and innovation) • Adopt/adapt/develop identification and traceability systems Output 2.3 Capacity for control of livestock diseases strengthened (vaccines, movement control, extension, treatment)
  13. 13. 13 Specific objective 3 Policy support for feed and forage value-chains and sustainable active participation of local communities in disease surveillance and early response strengthened. Indicators • Number of policies developed/revised and implemented • Number of communities mobilized for sustainable active participation
  14. 14. 14 Specific objective 3 Activities • Packaging and use of research evidence to support policy formulation on feed and forage value-chain development • Feed and forage value-chain strengthening policy development • Supporting implementation of feed and forage policy and standards • Monitoring of implementation of feed and forage policy and standards Output 3.1 Strengthen policy support for feed and forage value-chains
  15. 15. 15 Specific objective 3 Activities • Packaging and use of research evidence to support the review and updating of current policies and legislative provisions for livestock disease surveillance and response • Review of livestock disease surveillance and response policies • Supporting implementation of policy and legislation on livestock disease surveillance and response • Monitoring of implementation of policy and legislation on livestock disease surveillance and response Output 3.2 Policies for sustainable active participation of local communities in disease surveillance and early response revised and implemented
