The cornerstone of the CLP’s work to reduce extreme poverty on the chars of north western Bangladesh is the asset transfer project (ATP). Under the project, households receive an income-generating asset of their choice (95% choose cattle) which is intended to assist in generating a sustainable livelihood. A survey was conducted in 2012 to assess the effectiveness of cattle for livelihood improvement, by examining calving rates, calf mortality and the value of milk sales. This brief summarizes the findings in the main report.
