Integrated Livestock Development Project

Abstract: 
In December 2009, the Government of Syria (hereafter ‘the Government’-GOS), through the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform (MAAR) and the State Planning Commission (SPC), requested IFAD to finance a nationwide integrated livestock development project. The primary objectives of the project would be to help reduce poverty and empower poor rural households (the livelihoods of which depend on livestock activities in low-potential areas) through enhancing livestock productivity, integrating livestock into rain-fed farming systems and developing small businesses and microenterprises (SBMs) along the value chain of livestock produce. The Integrated Livestock Development Project (ILDP) is included in the IFAD country strategic opportunities programme (COSOP) for 2010-2015, approved by IFAD in December 2009 and endorsed by the Government.
