Transcript of Assessing participation of IITA in cassava processing activities in Nigeria

  • 1.Assessing participation of IITA incassava processing activities in Nigeria T. Abdoulaye, A. Abass, B. Maziya-Dixon, G. Tarawali, R. Okechukwu, J. Rusike, A. Arega and V.

2. Outline Background Methods Conceptual framework Preliminary results Observations from surveys Future work 3. Background Cassava impact well documented - productivity gains Processing research undocumented IITA promoted cassava processing - late 80s Processing increases demand and 4. Background Processing options for farmers on labor resourcemanagement Research on cassava improvement and agriculturalengineering and processing and product development PI 2002 opened frontier for marketing processed 5. Objectives Credible evidence of the impact of IITA cassavaprocessing research or lack of it in NigeriaSpecifically identify:(a) technologies and processes developed and promoted -how(b) Characteristics of innovations generated and theiroutcomes(c) Impact of cassava processing research interventions onhouseholds and others sector participants(d) Lessons to be learned from interventions 6. Hypotheses Cassava processing research activities generated anew stream of outputs with potential to confer benefitsto market participants The innovations were adopted by fabricators andprocessors and resulted in the changes in theirefficiencies Improved varieties and Processing are 7. Data AnalysisData will be analyzed using:- Descriptive statistics- Budgeting methods- Econometric models. including micro-econometricevaluation 8. Approach Data from 14 states, 74 villages in 4regions of Nigeria 36 villages with IITA intervention38 villages with no-IITA intervention 9. Location of Surveyed communities 10.

Observations about Cassava processing sector in Nigeria Gari is still the most popular product making thegraters the most used equipment Stakeholders recognize IITA as catalyst ofchanges PI another important factor of change. With change in 2007, millers stopped orderingcassava flour 18. Observations about Cassavaprocessing sector in Nigeria Rent seekers could not compete true for bothfabricators and processors Others have adjusted and diversified Few firms are reconsidering vertical integration 19.

Component approach to analyze complementarities and sequencing between processing and adoption of new varieties. Component approach will address if there are reasonsto justify intervention2. System analysis using intervention and non- intervention site to measure impact of interventions as a whole R4D approach System approach will focus on whether interventionsas a whole lead to impact 23. Future work- Use micro-econometrics approach to estimate impactbased on with and without R4D intervention by IITA andpartners.- Use econometrics to test complementarities - Johnson and Masters, 2004 could establish complementarities at village level but not at household - Now small graters more widely use and household level complementarities can be established- Conduct production cost and efficiency analysis - Manual vs. mechanical - Large vs. small enterprise- Compare to past estimations to test efficiency givencurrent prices 24.
