Abstract

Livestock contribute to the livelihoods of an estimated 70 percent of the world’s rural poor. The increasing demand for animal protein in low- and middle-income countries provides an opportunity for the poor to improve their livelihoods. However, the nature of livestock farming and marketing of livestock and their products is determined by policy and institutional frameworks that rarely favour the poor.

Launched in 2001 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Pro-Poor Livestock Policy Initiative (PPLPI) facilitates and supports the formulation and implementation of livestock-related policies and institutional changes that have a positive impact on the world’s poor. To achieve this, PPLPI combines stakeholder engagement with research and analysis, information dissemination and capacity strengthening.

Livestock sector development for poverty reduction: an economic and policy perspective reviews major aspects of the livestock-poverty interface with the objective of identifying the conditions under which livestock can be an effective tool for poverty reduction; the interventions that allow livestock’s poverty reduction potential to be unlocked, and the contexts in which they do so; and ways of facilitating sustainable implementation of these interventions.
