Developing value chain action plans for the Ethiopia Livestock Master Plan

ILRI will work with the Gates Foundation and the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) to develop a Livestock Master Plan (“LMP” or “LMP Road Map”), which is intended both to assist the MOA in developing a vision and strategy to inform its development support and investment planning, as well as to inform the strategies of the Foundation and other donors in their investments in Ethiopia. The LMP will be a series of 5-year development plans for the key livestock value chains, with specific strategies and timed activity plans with outputs, outcomes and expected impacts. The key chains (to be confirmed through stakeholder consultations) are expected to include: live animals and meat; dairy; hides, skins and leather; and apiculture.
