Competitive smallholder livestock in Botswana: Results of a livestock value chain survey in the Central District of Botswana

The smallholder livestock sector in Botswana faces a challenge in exploiting the growing national and regional demand for meat, as well as preferential access to the EU market. The incentives for value addition in pursuit of these markets appear to be limited. There is also limited evidence of innovation in the value chain, particularly for small stock.

This poster for the Tropentag 2014 conference shares findings from a study that explored the existing value chains in which livestock products are produced and traded in Botswana.

This week, ILRI staff are participating in the Tropentag 2014 International Conference in Prague (17-19 September 2014). There is also a dedicated ‘ILRI@40’ side event on ‘Livestock-based options for sustainable food and nutritional security and healthy lives.’  See all the posters.
