Under the U.S. Feed the Future Initiative, AGP-Livestock Market Development generates increased productivity and competitiveness of selected livestock value chains, benefiting both male and female smallholders. The program focuses on meat and dairy value chains. Through AGP-Livestock Market Development, USAID will foster growth, increase food security and reduce poverty by increasing incomes for producers, creating jobs in rural areas, and improving nutrition with support from the U.S. Global Health Initiative.
