Evaluation of "Improving farmer livelihoods in the dry zone through improved livestock health, productivity and marketing"

21/04/2020

“Improving farmer livelihoods in the dry zone through improved livestock health, productivity and marketing” was implemented in six townships in the Central Dry Zone (CDZ) of Myanmar, between January 2016 and December 2019. The project aim was to sustainably improve the livelihoods and food security of communities and the poor and vulnerable though improving livestock health, productivity, and marketing. The project is highly relevant as livestock are critical to people’s livelihoods in the area.

The project was evaluated as efficiently delivering benefits in developing sustainable livestock policies and identifying effective new technologies to promote livestock production. At the time of the evaluation, the impact of the project remains limited, as little extension work has been undertaken. However, the Government has taken strong ownership of improved production policies and practices. Over time, the impact is expected to enhance, as policies are consolidated and new technologies are extended.
