Fourth Livestock Development Project

Fourth Livestock Development Project

The project focused on improving the livelihoods and food security of small-scale agro-pastoralists in the highlands by addressing the main problems affecting their livestock, including disease and under-nourishment. It supported:

  • improved animal health by activities including strengthening field services and expanding national-level laboratories, vaccine production and epidemiological services
  • improved animal nutrition through activities such as improved forage production, intensive small-scale fattening and adaptive research
  • improved range management and utilization by agro-pastoralists

One of the project’s most important achievements was the successful introduction of several exotic herbaceous and tree legumes. These legumes provide high-quality fodder for livestock and enrich the soil. The project established two animal health and veterinary centres and strengthened vaccine production at the national level.
