Rapid assessment of potential benefits to human health and nutrition from research on livestock and fish market chains in Asia and Africa

Animal source foods (ASF) support the nutrition and livelihoods of millions of rural and urban poor, for whom livestock and fish value chains are also promising pathways out of poverty. Less attention has been given to the relation between ASF value chains and human health and nutrition, especially impacts of food-borne disease and nutritional security. This project seeks new methods and approaches for assessing value chains pertaining to nutrition and health, and will undertake an assessment of food quality and safety research priorities in those value chains with high potential for pro-poor transformation and of interest to CGIAR and ACIAR.
