The Enabling Environment for Animal Source Foods Market Systems: Technical Summary
Successful animal source food (ASF) market systems present tremendous opportunities for Feed the Future countries to achieve economic growth, resilience, inclusiveness and improved nutrition. However, for investments to succeed, USAID and its implementing partners must first understand the numerous interconnected issues at play that will determine whether potential translates into impact.
To aid this effort, the Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security (EEFS) project developed a suite of resources examining the enabling environment for ASF market systems and detailing the key supply-side, marketing and financial services factors that shape ASF system outcomes. Practitioners may access the full suite for a deep dive into how the enabling environment drives ASF system success, including EEFS’ technical report, learning note, blog series and video series, as well as EEFS’ three-part webinar series in partnership with the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems.
The Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security (EEFS) project is a precompeted blanket purchase agreement (BPA) for USAID Missions and operating units to access evidence-based analysis of how the enabling environment influences agricultural market system performance, food security and nutritional outcomes. For further information on how USAID can access EEFS' expertise, please contact the chief of party, Adam Keatts, at [email protected].
