Agriculture / Value Chains

Value chain development

LIVES project designs and promote appropriate value chain interventions and linkages through a participatory process in each of the 10 zones; each zone has a maximum of four commodities. Key livestock interventions include the development of improved input/service supply system to improve genetic potential of animals, in particular through community-based breeding of sheep and goats, hormone assisted mass insemination, and village-based pullet production. Key crop interventions include input and service supply systems for irrigated agriculture, including vegetable, fruit and fodder seed production systems and the establishment of private nurseries operated by individuals and or groups, irrigation pump repair services and irrigation scheme management. Attention will also be paid to post-harvest handling and storage on farm and grading, packaging and value addition.
