Pays : Ethiopie

Durée : 1987 - 1991

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.
