Northern Region Sustainable Livelihoods through Livestock Development Project

Northern Region Sustainable Livelihoods through Livestock Development Project (NRSLLDP)

 

Small-scale farmers in mountainous districts in the country’s northern region face declining productivity that is linked to limited access to productive land and forests and to appropriate technologies. They also lack marketing linkages for better livestock production and trade.

 

The project will help improve living conditions and sustainable livelihoods for poor upland communities of the Lao Theung and Lao Sung ethnic groups in the northern provinces of Bokeo, Houaphanh, Luang Namtha, Luang Prabang and Xieng Khouang. The objective is to improve livestock productivity and profitability and help develop linkages to export and domestic markets. The project will help improve nutrition and food security and increase the self-reliance of upland communities, and particularly of women. 

Activities will include:

  • developing livestock enterprises and market linkages for small-scale farmers
  • supporting the creation of village-based producers’ associations and revolving fund groups
  • developing materials in ethnic languages for radio broadcasts in project areas
  • building the capacity of extension workers to enable them to work effectively with diverse cultural communities
