Nepal: Community Livestock Development Project (South Asia Project Brief)

dc.contributor.authorGovinda P. Gewali
dc.description.abstractThe intent of national plans, the views of poverty and conflict-affected communities, the recommendations of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Livestock Subsector Review, and the ADB country program strategy all recognize the need for a livestock project with a poverty reduction focus: one that meets the needs of the poor; effectively links production and marketing; creates jobs; and meets urban market requirements for meat, milk, and eggs currently supplied by imports. The Community Livestock Development Project was thus prepared with government and key stakeholder participation, taking into account lessons learned in earlier ADB-assisted livestock development projects. The impact was to reduce the incidence of poverty in rural communities in the project area. Its outcome was to improve the levels of food security, nutrition, incomes, and employment for 164,000 families through increased productivity of the livestock subsector in an environmentally sustainable and socially equitable manner, while enhancing the capacity of the people to manage an ongoing process of development themselves.
