Bénéfices

Benefits: The Project is expected to directly benefit 1,000,000 livestock keeping households including 350,000 female-headed households and youth. The Project will mobilise participating farmers into fully trained farmer groups or associations in major livestock production areas and around community-based Livestock Service Centres (LSC). It will increase employment opportunities in livestock husbandry, marketing, and livestock products value chain. Public and private sector service capacity for the delivery of livestock extension and disease prevention and control services will be enhanced. The Project will also facilitate participation of the private sector through leasing out some of the structures within selected LSC which will be used as outlet for veterinary drugs and livestock feeds supplements. About 6,000,000 people, including 3,000,000 women and youth, will indirectly benefit from increases in supply of quality livestock products. The Project will directly create 3,000 permanent jobs and 125,000 seasonal jobs and about 500,000 indirect seasonal jobs along the small ruminant value chain. The associated projected outputs in terms of small ruminant numbers, during the project life, will be indicated in the Project
