Consultancy Jobs - Rapid Assessment of Goat Breeds in pastoral and agro-pastoral areas of Karamoja - Farm Africa


Organization: Farm Africa
Project Name: Livestock for Livelihoods (UK AID Direct) Project
Duty Station:

Napak: Ngoleriet, Lokopo, Lotome and Lopeei.
Moroto: Tapac, Rupa, Nadunget and Katikekile.
Nakapiripirit: Namalu and Moruita

About US:
Farm Africa is an innovative charity that reduces poverty in rural eastern Africa by helping farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more: we help farmers to not only boost yields, but also gain access to markets, and add value to their produce.  We place a high priority on environmental sustainability and develop approaches that help farmers to improve their yields and incomes without degrading their natural resources. Our programmes vary hugely, ranging from helping crops farmers to boost harvests, livestock keepers to improve animal health, and forest coffee growers to reach export markets, but core to all of them is a focus on the financial sustainability of the farmers’ businesses and environmental sustainability.

About the Project:
Farm Africa’s Livestock for Livelihoods (L4L) project, funded by DFID is currently being implemented in pastoral areas of Uganda and Ethiopia (2018 – 2022). Pastoralist and agro-pastoralist in these areas suffer from high rates of poverty and malnutrition. Women are particularly badly affected due to their low status and associated lack of decision making power and access to resources. A key role and source of income for women in pastoralist systems is managing small livestock. L4L project aims to increase household incomes and reduce household malnutrition through capacity building, community-led NRM; establishment of market systems for vet and breeding services; VSLA establishment, product value addition and marketing as well as nutrition awareness-raising. The project will establish 400 local women’s livestock groups and improve their access to livestock assets by means of a revolving goat fund supporting in-kind transfer of goats between most vulnerable households. The project will also pilot different approaches to local breed improvement including community managed buck rearing stations and private breeders to provide a supply of improved bucks to the community for cross breeding.
In order to roll-out the breeding improvement component of the project, Farm Africa is seeking to further conduct a rapid assessment to identify suitable higher milk producing goat breeds in Uganda that can adapt to the dry and hot climate in Karamoja. This project is implemented in the following four districts of Karamoja; (Moroto, Kotido, Napak and Nakapirpirit – a list of target sub counties can be found in Annex 1)

Project Outputs
·         10,000 women livestock herders in pastoralist communities increase production of goats and goat products
·         21,000 pastoralists and agro-pastoralist access improved livestock services and veterinary drug supply
·         15,000 women in pastoralist communities have improved opportunities for livestock sales, income generation and values addition
·         10,000 households in pastoralist communities with improved dietary diversity
·         Documentation and dissemination of project learning

Assignment Objectives: The principal purpose of this assessment is to identify suitable improved goat breeds that can adapt well in pastoral production systems that are fast growing with good milk production and recommend suitable goat breed improvement model that can work in extensive livestock production system.  The following are the objectives of this rapid assessment;
Assess the local goat breeds in the project area (see Annex 1 for target sub counties) and in Uganda in general and identify improved breeds that are fast growing and with good milk production potential that can be crossed with the local breeds in Karamoja to increase milk production and other productivity indices;
Specifically, the assignment should assess the breeds against the following;
·         Adaptability to the hot temperatures and harsh climate in pastoral area
·         Suitability of the feed resources available for the selected breed
·         Ability of the resource poor pastoralists to manage the selected breed
·         Ability of the selected breed to perform well under an extensive system of production in pastoral systems
·         Availability of a market for the offspring
·         Acceptability of the selected breed by the community
·         Productivity indices (especially milk production, birthing rates and growth rates) compared to the local breeds
Review reports of similar interventions and conduct interviews with government and civil society organizations that have implemented similar projects’ Karamoja and generate learnings for the project.
Then generate a report with recommendations of;
·         Suitable improved goat breeds options with information on where they can be sourced plus
·         Breed improvement model that the project can apply to successfully implement the breed improvement in an extensive system of livestock production
·         Key learnings from previous similar projects in the area.

·         Field visits in the implementation areas understand the environmental context including assessing the local goat breeds, feed resources, and community’s goat husbandry practices. 
·         Community level participatory meetings and focused group discussions to get their perceptions on introduction of new breeds, revolving goat scheme, payment for breeding services, husbandry practices
