New policy brief: Increasing support to the livestock sector to seize a major economic opportunity

Between 2005 and 2010, cattle producers in Mali faced price disincentives.

This was mainly due to inefficiencies in the country’s cattle value chain, which result in weak linkages between domestic and regional markets. Consequently, producers received lower prices than they could have received if market performance were improved through policies targeting the livestock sector. Support to livestock (cattle, sheep, and goats) is essential, as it is considered the country’s third largest export.
