CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE POULTRY VALUE CHAIN IN NIGERIA: ISSUES, EMERGING EVIDENCE, AND HYPOTHESES

The Nigerian poultry value chain is growing fast and transforming. This is linked to Nigerian diets including more eggs and poultry meat as incomes rise and urbanization occurs. Poultry are important for nutrition as well as incomes in Nigeria. But the poultry value chain is complex – varying over parts of the country in how modern or traditional it is. Really very little has been known about that value chain, as its rapid emergence as an important domestic commercial supply chain is recent. Climate change is also a recently emerging problem and little is known about how it will affect Nigeria’s food economy. These two gaps make it especially unknown what is occurring from the combination of climate change and poultry value chain growth and transformation. How will climate change affect feed supply chains? Poultry farming and supply chains? How will poultry farming itself perhaps affect climate change? We explore these questions in a preliminary way in this brief.
