Capacity development plays a critical enabling role in facilitating the adoption and scaling out of value chain development interventions and approaches by addressing attitudinal, knowledge and skills gaps in value chain actors, service providers and value chain supporters.
A recent poster by scientists at International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) highlights capacity development approaches to market-oriented expansion taken in the Livestock and Irrigation Value chains for Ethiopian Smallholders (LIVES) project. Increasing the skills and knowledge and increasing the sharing of this knowledge will help farmers to receive a greater income. Offering farmers, a pathway to prosperity.
