Livestock and Fish: More milk, meat, and fish by and for the poor

  1. 1. Research Program on Livestock and FishLivestock and FishMore milk, meat, and sh by and for the poorPurposeTo increase the productivity of livestock and sh farming in selected developing countries toenhance the nutrition and increase the incomes of poor and hungry households.Why farm animals?Livestock + sh = big opportunities for the poor.1. High demand Increasing demand for animal-source foods in developing countries is a big opportunity for smallholders, who can raise their incomes by meeting that demand.2. Highly nutritious Animal-source foods are critical for malnourished people, especially women and children.3. Highest value Meat, milk, and sh are generally the highest value agricultural products globally.Expected impacts over the next 10 yearsResearch is focused on value chains to generate big and measurable impacts with:Dairy and pigs for better incomes (Viet Nam, Uganda, Tanzania, India, Nicaragua)High potential: We can double productivity and livestock incomes of 100,000 households ineach country (50,000 in Central America).Aquaculture for better nutrition (Uganda)High potential: We can increase the supply of sh by 615,000 tonnes a year in Egypt, 11,000tonnes a year in Uganda (doubling supplies there).Goats and sheep for better livelihoods (Mali, Ethiopia)Medium potential: We can increase national meat production by 5,000 tonnes a year, dou-bling livestock incomes in 70,000 households in each country.Partners
