General

Supporting the establishment of 6 national or 3 regional MSPs with active involvement of capacitated CSOs, private sector, small scale producers aiming at a more sustainable beef sector linked to the GRSB Global to Local Agenda. The Southern Africa Regional Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (SARRSB) has been established to develop a holistic approach to address land degradation, poor animal health and low productivity in the livestock sector in Southern Africa. Focus countries are Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa; other countries in the region are hoped to crowd-in in the near future. Over the course of 2019, the Zambian Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock has announced to put the Livestock Grading app, developed as a pilot under the Landscape Programme in Zambia , into law. In Malawi, National Animal Welfare and Guidelines were adopted after consultations with Solidaridad and partners. In Zimbabwe, a pilot has started empowering women youth to develop new business in leather, because skins and hides are products that are not monetized and farmers do not see any value in them. In South Africa, with AfgriColleges we agreed to develop a curriculum on Holistic land management. The results of these local initiatives (the guidelines, the pilots, the grading app) feed into the regional SARRSB forum for regional consideration and uptake.
