According to IFC website, the objective of the Livestock Micro reforms in Agribusiness (L-MIRA) is to harmonize, simplify and improve regulations in the poultry value chain with the effect of making it easier for value chain actors to manage regulatory responsibilities and more easily access key inputs. The project has four reinforcing components:
1. To improve the regulation of drugs and vaccines by simplifying and improving the current registration process as well as post market surveillance .
2. To improve the regulation of animal feed working with the key regulators including the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD), the Standards Organization of Nigeria, and the Nigerian Institute for Animal Science (NIAS). The project will work to improve and update the current poultry feed standards and regulatory processes.
3. To improve the regulation of hatcheries in Nigeria for the production of DOCs - working closely with the industry associations, FMARD, and NIAS to improve the existing SOPs for hatchery operations.
4. Knowledge management and communications on the L-MIRA project reforms and on industry best practice.
The project aims to harmonize, simplify and improve regulations in the poultry value chain. These regulatory reforms will help to strengthen markets and improve competitiveness by making it easier for value chain actors to manage regulatory responsibilities and more easily access key inputs.
