The project purpose was sustainable and replicable mechanisms and pathways for assembling, disseminating and promoting information on livestock related strategies and technologies in order to increase the likelihood of adoption by resource poor farmers in semi arid, high potential and forest agriculture systems in DFID target countries. The project was therefore run and managed through active participation of the resource poor farmers who were the target beneficiaries. The necessary supportive institution, the Meru Goat Breeders Association (MGBA), was formed to enable farmers to organise themselves into a legally recognized body, with similar goals.
