Ethiopian Livestock Feeds Project Synthesis Meeting

28-29 May 2012
Addis Ababa

Techfit SWOT

  • Lists most feed technologies
  • filters technologies according to contexts of the farmer
  • considers most limiting factors, eg land
  • a rapid tool
  • quick and comprehensive
  • puts feed in a broader context
  • helps to systematize shortlisting of technology options

  • does not consider Water availability
  • the scoring may mask some potential technologies
  • narrow scoring range for attributes and contexts (1-3 only)
  • gives equal weights to all attributes
  • not yet complete, also the cost benefit tool

Opportunities to use
  • wide context range = wider application
  • wide technology range = wide application across AEZ
