Résumé
Livestock supply chains are a significant source of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and emit an estimated 7.1 Gigatonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalents per year, representing approximately 14% of all human-induced emissions as per Gerber et al. (2013). GHG emissions of the livestock sector are mainly comprised of methane (44%), nitrous oxide (29%) and carbon dioxide (27%). The study was to find out the climate-smart practice along the forage value chain in Githunguri and Olenguruone dairy farmers cooperatives in order to develop a sustainable business model. From the findings, actors the cost of production is increasing due to environmental, economic and social factors. Environmental factors include land used management, GHG emission, energy consumption. Economic factors include demand and supply financial constraints, interest rates, taxes and inflation. Finally, on social factors include stakeholders’ relationship and chain governance. To address these challenges to upscale for the sustainability of the forage value chain, the research suggested that, chain governance should be upgraded to be more inclusive, this will accommodate the social issue in terms relationship through coordination and collaboration of chain actors and stakeholders. Also the introduction of climate-smart technologies and the development of an inclusive business model.
