Organization: African Union - InterAfrican Bureau for Animal Resources
Closing date: 18 May 2021

Background

The African Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) is a specialized Technical Office of the Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture of the African Union Commission. It’s mandate is to support and coordinate the sustainable development and utilization of animal resources (livestock, fisheries and wildlife) to enhance nutrition and food security and contribute to the wellbeing and prosperity of the people in the Member States of the African Union (AU). AU-IBAR accomplishes its mandate through supporting and empowering the AU Member States, the Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and other stakeholders in the sector. AU-IBAR’s vision is of an Africa in which animal resources contribute significantly to the reduction of poverty and hunger.

A European Union funded AU-IBAR Project, Pan-Africa Support to the AU-IBAR for the Sustainable Development of Livestock for Livelihoods in Africa (Live2Africa) Project, aims to strengthen the systemic capacity of continental, regional and national livestock sector stakeholders for the economically, environmentally and socially sustainable transformation of the livestock sector. The Live2Africa Project is developed along seven Results aligned to the Livestock Development Strategy for Africa (LiDeSA): Result 1: Investments in livestock value chains (LVCs) are increased; Result 2: Animal Health Delivery Services are improved; Result 3: Animal Production, Productivity and Ecosystem Management are enhanced; Result 4: Resilience of Livestock Production Systems are strengthened; Result 5: Technology adoption in the Livestock Value Chains is increased; Result 6: Access to inputs, services, markets and value addition are increased; Result 7: AU-IBAR capacities are strengthened.

The Live2Africa Project pioneers a comprehensive and integrated continental initiative that addresses all the subcomponents of livestock development utilizing a value chain approach, focusing on selected priority regional livestock value chains. In February 2019 in Nairobi Kenya, a Stakeholder Prioritization Exercise identified six regional livestock value chains, including the West Africa Regional Poultry Value Chain (RPVC). This strategic decision is in line with the ECOWAS 2025 Strategy, developed after the review of the implementation of the ECOWAS Agricultural Policy (ECOWAP). The Regional Poultry Value Chain (RPVC) is a core element of the agricultural economy of the West African community. FAOSTAT (2018) estimated the poultry stock in this space at more than 520 million heads, representing 27% of continental stocks. The region produced more than 680,000 tons of poultry meat in 2017, or 50.22% of the consumption volume estimated at around 1.354 million tons on the same date. Demand therefore outstrips domestic supply, leading to an import of more than 674,000 tons of chicken in 2017. However, since the avian flu crisis and the guidelines given both by the continental commitments (Malabo) on agriculture transformation for shared prosperity and by ECOWAP +25, many governments within the community have taken measures to: (i) limit imports of poultry meat; and (ii) massively invest in this sub-sector. However, poultry consumption per capita was estimated at 1.77 kg in 2017, far from world standards (14 kg in 2017). There are therefore significant lines of action to be implemented to improve avian productivity and production in order to better position this subsector products in the diets of regional populations.

The West African sub-sector still faces many problems and challenges, the most important of which are relate to:

  • The limited professionalization of stakeholders in the poultry value chains, for which there is little information on their level of structuring and organization. The West African poultry sub-sector is made up of two value chains: (i) that of traditional livestock rearing, which is by far the most important; and (ii) the modern poultry industry which is increasingly gaining momentum in many countries, notably coastal states (Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Senegal). Fully-fledged national value chains are emerging in many countries around the so-called modern sectors, but for which the level of structuring, the scope, and the contribution to the agro-food economy of each country and region are not well documented. The challenge for the region is to get a complete mapping of regional poultry value chains, to guide public and private sector actions.
  • The poor intra-regional trade in poultry products. According to Comtrade, intra-community trade in poultry products represents around 1.45% of West African regional production volume. It comprises of three product components: (i) the marketing of live products, in particular day-old chicks and poultry from traditional farming; (ii) transactions involving offals which essentially relate to the re-export of products imported from the international market; and (iii) the marketing of poultry eggs. The extent of transactions, the marketing channels, actors involved, factors, and other barriers to regional poultry trade are poorly documented. The challenge for the region is to promote intra-community trade in poultry products to strengthen regional integration and the resilience of populations.
  • The low level of organization and of structuring of actors in the value chains of poultry sectors. In some countries, consultation frameworks and other inter-professional organizations have emerged in recent years, and set themselves the goal of contributing to creating a conducive environment for the development of the poultry value chains in the region. The degree of inclusion of the various components of the poultry supply chain, the value chain links, the categories of actors (women and youth) is not well documented. Similarly, existing organizations of regional scope are still compartmentalized based on affinities which do not allow effective actions to improve public policies both at national and regional level. The structuring of professionals (ensemble of actors from all links) into functional consultation frameworks is an important issue to be addressed to remove the bottlenecks in the West African poultry value chains.
  • The lack of an institutional instrument to boost development policies and strategies for the poultry sub-sector. The issues in the poultry value chains are dealt with, either under steering bodies of the agricultural sector in the broad sense or under those of the livestock sector. This does not make it possible to address all the dimensions and specificities of the constraints that arise in these value chains. The challenge for the region is to set up a body to support the management of all current or planned initiatives, shared by all stakeholders.

In line with these constraints and challenges, a Stocktaking Exercise held in Cairo, Egypt, in August 2019 identified the priority catalytic interventions that will be implemented in partnership between AU-IBAR through the Live2Africa Project and ECOWAS to contribute to boosting the transformation of the West Africa Regional Poultry Value Chain. The overall goal of the 2020 Action Plan is to strengthen knowledge on the ongoing structural dynamics and transformations in poultry value chains in order to define appropriate public policy measures to boost their development.

Specifically, there is a need to:

  1. Map out the poultry value chains of the fifteen ECOWAS countries,
  2. Assess the functioning of the regional poultry market and the implications of policy measures flowing from it ;
  3. Support the structuring of stakeholders into an inter-professional organization or a consultation platform inclusive of the fifteen member states and of women and youth;
  4. Institutionalize a regional Task Force to lead initiatives affecting the poultry value chains
  5. Hold the inaugural version of the Ibadan Poultry Conference and Exhibition

These activities will be implemented from a regional poultry value chain approach, employing an active research and participatory planning method (MARP) approach which emphasizes engagement of local populations to understand local conditions, and synthesis at regional level to guide development of integrated regional approaches.

Overall Aim of the Consultancies

Informed by the felt needs in the West Africa regional poultry value chain, and the specific catalytic activities identified by stakeholders that will contribute to strengthening of the West Africa regional poultry value chain, the AU-IBAR Live2Africa Project in partnership with ECOWAS calls for applicants to present proposals to undertake the following Consultancies listed below:
