Livestock Services And The Poor
PDF File Size: 785 KB | Download   
The analysis in Chapter 1 concludes that livestock can be an indispensable part of the livelihood systems of many poor rural and urban populations in developing countries, that it can play a crucial role in farming systems and that it can decrease the vulnerability of households. However, current national and global policies, as well as existing livestock services, often favour large-scale production. The enhancement of livestock development alone will therefore not necessarily contribute to poverty reduction. On the contrary, without proper targeting, livestock development might contribute to the crowding out of poor livestock keepers. The root causes of poverty and wider needs related to health, education and housing in livestock-based communities must be addressed if livestock interventions are to produce a widespread and substantial reduction of poverty. Livestock services can contribute through empowerment and increased income, as seen in poverty-focused projects aimed at, for example, India dairy production and Bangladesh poultry. Livestock services, however, will not be able to address all the issues connected to poverty. It is therefore crucial that inclusive and effective poverty reduction strategies be adopted at a policy level, including ‘enabling’ policies that address the root causes of poverty and enhance the development of pro-poor livestock services.
