    This regional workshop was designed to strengthen the capabilities of representatives of NIFUs for analyzing the situations of their NAIS, and to use their national experiences to identify strengths, weaknesses, and threats/challenges affecting seven key areas influencing development of NAIS, namely: (i) strategy/policy, (ii) institutional aspects, (iii) stakeholders, (iv) content, (v) people, (vi) infrastructure, and (vii) financial aspects. Possible solutions for the key weaknesses and threats /challenges were defined by participants. Finally, the countries’ priorities for early implementation were identified drawing on the list of solutions/ recommendations in their own contexts. The regional workshop was also designed to follow-up on the progress made on the NERAKIN knowledge sharing and collaboration platform, in terms of providing training to the stakeholders in the region.

    Milk provides relatively quick returns for small-scale livestock keepers. It is a balanced, nutritious food that is important to household food security in many rural economies. Milk and dairy products play an important role in human nutrition and contribute to economic development. Smallholders produce the vast majority of milk in developing countries where by 2025, demand is expected to increase by 25 percent. This publication is the first report on studies commissioned by FAO of three na tional dairy development institutions in East Africa. The evolution and diversity of dairy development institutions in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania are reviewed, and drivers of change and improvement in national policies and strategies are identified. The composition, role, structure, shortcomings and future prospects of each national dairy institution are reviewed in order to provide readers with insights as to how to improve their performance and learn from their experiences.
