Project Description

According to bank documents, the Livestock Sector Development Project supports the Government's goal of creating up to 500,000 new, productive, and sustainable jobs annually and has been confirmed as one of the priority investment operations in the Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for 2016-2020, approved by the World Bank Board in June 2016. The proposed project is strongly aligned with two focus areas of the CPF - private sector growth and agricultural competitiveness and cotton sector modernization. The project helps to meet CPF's objectives (i) to sustain agricultural growth by supporting diversification through expansion of fodder crop production and addressing productivity constraints in livestock production and processing as well as animal health and food safety related constraints to trade; and (ii) to stimulate private investments and job creation in agribusiness through growth of the meat and dairy processing sector and other livestock related agribusinesses. The Project Development Objective (PDO) would be to improve livestock production and supply chain management in target oblasts by improving access to finance, nutrition and support services.
