As part of the initial value chain development process, each of the target value chains supported by the Livestock and Fish program is carrying out a ‘situation analysis.’ The main objective is to assess the conditions within which the target value chains in the selected country operates. It aims to set broader national contexts for rapid and in-depth value chain assessments and analysis at sites or small geographical scales through the subsequent research activities.
Each assessment exercise provides an overview of past trends, current status, and likely future directions for the specific value chain.
The Uganda smallholder pig value chain situation analysis report was published in late 2013.
It assesses the conditions within which the pig value chains in Uganda operate, and sets out a broader national context for the rapid and in-depth pig value chain assessments and analysis at site or small geographical scales through subsequent research activities. It provides an overview of past trends, current status and the likely future directions in pig value chains in Uganda, and identifies the underlying challenges and opportunities faced by different actors in the smallholder pig production value chains.
