Broadening horizons

By Harinder P.S. Makkar, Emily Addonizio and Lemma Gizachew

To better monitor the national and regional livestock sectors and formulate adequate development strategies, it is essential to develop systematic approaches to accurately assess livestock feed supplies and obtain better insight into how feed resources are being utilized. The latter information on use of feed resources is achieved by characterizing the feeding systems. A detailed information on feeding systems in lowlands of Ethiopia is presented here. Also approaches to meet the deficiency of animal feed in the dry seasons are presented.

Ethiopia: feed inventory Ethiopia: report on feed inventory and feed balance - FAO, 2018. FAO, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Rome, Italy

This document presents an inventory and balance of feeds available in Ethiopia so that the country can be aware of its needs, resource availability, gaps, implications and how the gap can be filled within the country. This will make feed interventions in the country effective in the immediate, medium and long term as well as provide solutions for replication in the region.

World livestock: Transforming the livestock sector through the Sustainable Development Goals World Livestock: Transforming the livestock sector through the Sustainable Development Goals - FAO, 2018. FAO, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Rome, Italy

The livestock sector can play a key role in addressing, directly or indirectly, sustainable development goals (SDGs). While, for decades, the livestock debate has focused on how to increase production in a sustainable manner, the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has added a new and broader dimension to the debate. It has shifted the emphasis of the conversation from fostering sustainable production per se, to enhancing the sector’s contribution to the achievement of the SDGs.
