Strengthening of Veterinary Services

The overall objective of the project is to assist the Government of Pakistan (GoP), both at national as well as provincial level, to realise the potential of the livestock sector, by improvement of farmers’ livelihoods through better provision of livestock services, especially of disease control, and through enhancing productivity.
The specific objectives are to strengthen the GoP capacity to plan and manage the sustainable delivery of public services to the sector in the context of a difficult economic situation, while at the same time examining ways in which the private sector delivery of services can be improved.
The immediate beneficiaries are the national, provincial and, eventually, district livestock services, while the ultimate beneficiaries are the farmers, particularly smallholders, whose livelihoods will be improved.
