Pro-poor dairy development: Lessons learned from South Asia and East Africa shared at Ethiopia national dairy forum

Capacity building, research, value chain development, and policy and institutional interventions were among several issues discussed at a national dairy forum that was organized to deliberate on pragmatic approaches towards enhancing dairy development in Ethiopia.

The forum which was held on 23-24 November 2010 at Ghion Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia brought together key dairy stakeholders from Ethiopia and the eastern Africa region to share experiences and lessons learned in the development of pro-poor dairy policy. Participants also explored the key challenges, opportunities and interventions in the development of smallholder dairy.

Among the several presentations given at the forum was one by agricultural economist and director of ILRI's Market Opportunities Theme, Dr Steve Staal, that compared pro-poor dairy policy development in South Asia and East Africa and highlighted key lessons with regard to the role of traditional markets, technology and dairy co-operatives.
