Agricultural Sector Development Programme - Livestock: Support for Pastoral and Agro-Pastoral Development

The programme targets the poorest members of herder and agro-pastoralist groups who depend mainly on livestock for their livelihoods. Women, young people and marginalized groups, and some Zanzibar fishing households, will be a particular focus of the programme. The programme will also address the special needs of the large numbers of poor rural people affected by HIV/AIDS.

The overall objective of the programme is to improve food security and increase incomes within these communities. Specifically the programme will work to improve livelihoods for the target groups by:

  • helping farmers identify and manage their own development needs
  • improving livestock production through research and technology
  • improving marketing systems and infrastructure for livestock products
  • strengthening national and local government institutions to improve services to livestock farmers
  • promoting a participatory approach to natural resource management within local administrations
  • investing in improved health care and water management
