Designing Appropriate Financial Instruments For Modern Beekeeping In Ethiopia
The aim of this study is to estimate the economic feasibility of modern beekeeping activities versus traditional beekeeping in the context of pro-poor interventions directed to improve the livelihood of the chronically food insecure group of households in Ethiopia. The option of the initial use of a transitional (less expensive) technology with a later move to the modern beekeeping practices was also evaluated. This transition option initially looked as a promising mechanism taking into consideration limited capital savings and access to financial resources of the target group of beneficiaries. The study, however, revealed that the option of using transitional beehives eventually faces the same level of the financial constraint, while significantly reducing the income of the households during the first three years.
