Ghana - Livestock Development Project - Project Completion Report (PCR)


An estimated 58% of persons identified as poor are in the agricultural sector, a good number of whom keep livestock, in particular small ruminants. The livestock sub-sector has suffered years of neglect with no substantial investment made except towards the mid 70s to early 80s (1974-1981) where some efforts were made, with limited success/impact. Since then the only known major investment in the sub-sector which made some significant achievement was the World Bank/GoG financed National Livestock Services Project (NLSP), implemented between 1993 and 1999. To consolidate these investments, ADF/GoG funded Livestock Development Project (LDP) came on stream with focus on poverty reduction and food security to be achieved through smallholder income generating activities-such as small ruminant/dairy production, processing (meat and milk) and marketing.
