Abstract: The project addressed issues of importance to the Indonesian poultry industry following the entry of HPAI into the country in 2003. Significant work was being undertaken with regard to village chicken systems but disease movement and poultry mortality issues within the non-industrial commercial poultry sector (NICPS) were not being examined. It was clear that the structure of the value chain was not encouraging farmers to improve their biosecurity with resultant continuation of human and chicken mortalities throughout Indonesia. The aim of the project was to use a value chain approach to reduce the risk of disease in NICPS farms through providing economic incentives for smallholders to invest in biosecurity. The project was managed by UNE in partnership with DGL & AHS, FMPI and IPB. Success required value chain development and ownership of project activities by both government (national, provincial and kabupaten) and the poultry industry. This project was the first to have an industry association (FMPI) as a formal project partner. Through the provincial industry partners, the project developed value chain stakeholder training and management programs which resulted in a total of 613 stakeholders including 317 smallholders being trained to better understand disease movement and how to reduce disease risk in and around the farm. These smallholders then had the opportunity to be part of a farm approval process which would allow them to participate in a trial which developed and implemented a 'clean market chain' and rewarded smallholders, through the receival of a premium price, for their investment in biosecurity.
