Public-private partnerships for livestock facilities

PPP study1

Ethiopia has experienced substantial growth in official exports of meat and livestock during the last few years, and livestock export targets have been set in the government’s Growth and Transformation Plan.

Responding to a request from the Ministry of Agriculture to the AKLDP and the Livestock Market Development project, the project supported a review of public-private partnerships (PPPs) as a means to improve the technical and financial efficiencies of livestock facilities. The review focused on experiences in Somaliland and Djibouti, where PPPs are more well-established and cover quarantine centers, abattoirs and markets. The review team also examined a new livestock quarantine center at Mille in Ethiopia in light of PPP arrangements in neighboring countries and the preferences of importing countries to source animals from PPP-managed units.
