In September 2014, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) organized a dairy value chain seminar with support from the CGIAR Research Programs on Policies, Institutions, and Markets and on Livestock and Fish.
The main topics of discussion were:
- African smallholder inclusion into dairy value chains
- Private-sector investment into the African dairy industry
- Gender roles and empowerment in African dairy value chains
Visit the seminar wiki page to find presentations and posters, notes of the stories shared on dairy value chain development in Africa, and feedback from peers to real-life problems faced by four practitioners or researchers of dairy value chains in Africa.
There are also photos, blogposts and several videos discussing the outcomes of the seminar from the viewpoints of organizers and participants.
