notes on value exchange of milk in developing countries
: I was at a small breakfast meeting where usaid goes through cases - todays was on what Atlanta-based CARE is facilitating with local Bangladeshi moderators regarding total dairy chain in bangladesh
and BRAC was featured as a major representative of the poorest in this market's value chain; a few weeks earlier a similar system dynamics map explained what freedom of knowhow is needed to end poverty with kenya's milk chains
tons of eye-openers on what makes Bangla Dairy contextually different are being mapped
the difference between seasonal glut and lack of milk - the big processors go from under-capacity to over-capacity - no wonder the poorest get squeezed out of both extreme market swings
collectors who accidentally act as the markets sharks- the small producers have to deal with them and they are too big an anti-social network association for any one of the 4 main dairy companies to argue with first
what this also means is the collectors mix various qualities of milk together but there is now a magic tech gizmo enabling any mobile person to test milk quality - so the milk's freedom game is how to renegotiate with collectors so poorest are sustainble and quality milk is enjoyed by all
also occasionally international companies have gluts of powdered milk which they dump on richer bangla citizens- again destroying markets prices- a perfect recipe for corruption in government (mis-)regulation of such
Cross-over maps - the french government and danone have been using analysis of milk value chains to demand total revaluation of all basic foodsmarkets - see cannnes B20 subsummit of G20 november 2011 and www.danonecommunities.com where 100000 French youth celebrate the good news of goodwill economics and the job creating futures it leads to
Danone connected extraordinary goodwill when it asked chinese infant nutritionalists to extend the world's most valuable yogurt designed round missing infant nutrition - the chinese said why not fortify grains as a far easier market to distribute- so the most valuable co-creatyed market between the 3 countries of china, france and bangaldesh is opening up - search out how swiss based Gain and a bit of Yunus wizardry helped stir this goodwill world trade
regarding 2 value chain design - ethiopians hope to host the most transparent bottom-up value chain development summit ever seen in DC on june 19 http://www.usadbc.org/#!about-us/c1se

also this note from an announcemkent at recent skoll summit appeared inbox today
The 450 million smallholder farmers around the world, who comprise the majority of those living in absolute poverty, have an enormous unmet financing need. Such financing requirements include small loans for inputs like seeds and fertilizer. A few weeks ago, seven leading social lenders, who collectively disbursed $360 million in 2013 toward agriculture financing, joined forces to spur sustainable growth and instill responsible practices in this vital lending area: they formed the Council on Smallholder Agricultural Finance.
Launched at the Skoll World Forum in Oxford, the Council is made up of Alterfin, Oikocredit, Rabobank’s Rabo Rural Fund, responsAbility Investments AG, Root Capital, the Shared Interest Society, and Triodos Investment Management. The Council will meet regularly, share experiences and insights, and develop best practices and industry standards across three areas: market growth; responsible lending principles; social and environmental impact.
The Council particularly targets loans to “missing middle” agricultural businesses in low- and middle-income countries. The “missing middle” refers to businesses that require financing in the $25,000 to $2 million range, which are amounts often deemed too large for microfinance and too low for commercial banks. These businesses include producer organizations, companies that source from smallholder farmers, and companies that provide productive assets to smallholder farmers, often on credit. These companies can serve hundreds to thousands of farmers, offering an array of services including market access support, training, financial services, and accessible assets. Though millions of smallholder farmers are connected to these missing middle businesses, the vast majority are not.

Dear Friends at USAID Value Chains Knowledge Sharing Events
Last week I met the Ethiopian owner of the elearning satellite yazmi which reaches 5 billion people (his head office offering 20 years of development of this facility is in silver spring maryland.)
Friends of health millennials networks and partners, and I are particularly keen to see an end ebola module up as fast as possible. Unlike the negropronte $100 laptop model that made mit the world's number 1 media lab for open tech students, yazmi includes direct downloading from satellite at no additional cost per tablet bought. The question preoccupying me is what other existing content form eg the world of knowhow of usaid does could yazmi to demonstrate.
Regarding food security and sustainable livelihoods: I have always wanted to see value chain understanding shared optimally. I am wondering if the advances in open education routes that are potentially coming together in 2015 - eg I also know some of the world banks open elearning campus team that aims to link MOOC/coursera partners whose goal is to offered on-demand action learning not certificate-based models of sharing information and actionable jobs with millennials. The same team organises the world bank's emerging series of end poverty tedx TEDxWBG
I have for example twice flown to dhaka to personally brief sir fazle abed of BRAC on the coming possibilities of open education relating to those aspects of food value chains where his life's work has provided leading benchmarks
Jean please tell me if this may be of interest to you or colleagues so we can work out what level of meeting (involving yazmi or others) would be useful first

On November 17-21, 2014, member states gathered in Rome for the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), bringing together experts on global health, under- and over-nutrition, food supply, and non-communicable and communicable disease, with the overall aim to address malnutrition in all its forms.
In conjunction with ICN2, over 300 of the world’s leading health campaigners, academics, consumer advocates, and civil society organizations rallied together to publicly endorse calls for a tobacco-style treaty to protect and promote healthy diets. The calls for a binding treaty on food were published in an open letter to the WHO Director General Dr. Margaret Chan and FAO Director General José Graziano da Silva, which was co-authored by representatives from YP-CDN, the World Obesity Federation, Consumers International, the UK Health Forum, and consumer groups in Fiji and Mexico. The letter urges greater action to protect and promote healthy diets using a similar mechanism to the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC) which has been successful in reducing tobacco use.
