    This document contains five country reviews (South Africa, Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya and Zambia) and one regional synthesis paper on the animal and aquafeed industry in sub-Saharan Africa. Surveys of the existing aquaculture and aquafeed industries were undertaken with the purpose to determine the status of commercial aquafeed production in sub-Saharan Africa, and to provide an indication of the region’s potential to produce aquafeeds. Main findings were the following: • Aquaculture prod uction reported for the five countries was found to vary between 1 000 and 30 776 tonnes per annum. While Nigeria was the largest producer, Zambia reported the lowest production. • Nigeria was the largest producer of manufactured aquafeeds (10 760 tonnes both in 2000 and 2001). • With the exception of South Africa, farm-made feeds were found to supply a significant proportion of all the countries’ aquafeed requirements. • Major feed ingredients that are used in livestock feed production were generally available across the region. In some countries, difficulties were reported in obtaining supplies of fish oils as well as specialised vitamin and mineral mixes. • A projection of future aquafeed requirements for 2015 suggests that all countries will have the potential to produce sufficient aquafeeds using existing production capacities. • Key indicators identified for a country’s ability to produce aquafeeds were existing livestock feed manufacturing capacity, availability of s uitable feed ingredients for incorporation into aquafeeds, availability of suitably trained personnel, and favourable legislative and taxation system.

    With the current Second Growth and Transformation Plan (2015-2020), the Government of Ethiopia expects the agro-industrial sector to play key role in economic growth of the Country. Accordingly, the creation of Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks has been identified as one of the key mechanisms for accelerating the development of the sector and the structural transformation of agriculture. Agro-industrial parks will play a significant role in transitioning Ethiopia from an agricultural-led into an industrial-led economy. In view of that, the development of Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks has been prioritized in Ethiopia’s national development strategy and four Agro Industrial Growth Corridors have been selected for piloting the establishment of four Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks. The initiative aims at driving the structural transformation of the Ethiopian economy while reducing rural poverty and creating a better environment for increased investments in agro-processing and allied sectors. Since 1981, FAO has been a strong partner of the Government of Ethiopia towards the achievement of national food security and economic growth goals. FAO is working closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources to empower value chain actors and to promote inclusive, efficient and sustainable agricultural value chains. The present document is the fourth one of a series of detailed analyses of prioritized commodities, which will lead to inclusive, sustainable and stronger agricultural value chains in the Agro-Commodities Procurement Zone of the pilot Integrated Agro-Industrial Park in Central-Eastern Oromia.
