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

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

December 2018
Despite decades of research and development of technologies and innovations which improve farming practices and productivity, small farmers in Tanzania continue to use technologies and practices which do not favour high yields and economic returns.
