ADB is providing 0.5 million USD with a purpose of technical assistance which will help the government of the Republic of Kazakhstan prepare the project on Livestock Value Chain Development. Livestock numbers are projected to continue to increase over the period 2019-2022, reflecting the government's aim of increased national self-sufficiency. Women and men are evenly represented in agriculture, however, the number of women employed in agriculture has declined by 34% between 2006 and 2016. The government regards improving the population's access to livestock products as a means of improving standards of human nutrition and food security.
Technical Asistance will help with:
(i) preparation of the project feasibility study (including all required due diligence),
(ii) relevant costs related to project processing by ADB and the government,
(iii) implementation start-up support.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
