dc.descriptionState of Livestock Market Information Systemsen
dc.description.abstractMajority of African livestock farmers are older smallholders living in isolated rural areas and thus lack appropriate access to markets for their products and they are also deprived of agricultural market information. As they lack these, the smallholder livestock producers have no adequate information on demand and supply, what to produce and when, and therefore can be exploited by other actors in the chain and receive low prices for their agricultural produce.en

    This collection provides information on work that is being rendered towards the implementation of the Livestock Development Strategy for Africa (LIDeSA) - A 20 years (2015-2035) strategy geared towards addressing Africa’s development needs and challenges. The strategy is aligned to the ongoing regional strategies, policy frameworks and guidelines; and is coherent with the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), Frameworks and Agenda at the Continental, Regional Economic Community (REC) and Member States (MS) levels. The LiDeSA embraces “business unusual” approaches and focuses on encouraging increased investments from both public and private sources for the transformation of the sector to enhance its contribution to socio-economic development and equitable growth.
