Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to World Bank documents, the objective of the proposed project is to support the development of an inclusive and competitive milk value chain, focusing on smallh older livestock rearers and producer-owned institutions in the project area.

The proposed project will address key well known gaps and deficiencies in the dairy sector in selected states in India
and support the sector’s transformation towards increased productivity, resilience, and profitability. By doing so it will
contribute to key aspects of the GoI and the Bank’s CPF strategic objectives related to faster and broader agriculture
sector growth and inclusive development. The project will also work closely with the pipeline project under development
– Animal Health System Support for Improved One Health (AHSSOH) – to enhance animal health management. In line
with the PDO, the project will have four interlinked intervention areas to support the development of inclusive and
competitive milk value chain viz., (i) Enhancing institutional capacity and sustainability; (ii) Strengthening dairy market
development; (iii) Enhancing food safety and quality; and (iv) GHG mitigation and climate resilience.
