This policy briefing is based on Working Paper No. 1.
The briefing summarises the origins and reasons for existence of the
Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, used to enhance the interactions
between donors and recipient countries for effective poverty reduction.
The potential of livestock for poverty reduction is belived to be
under-represented in PRSPs, despite the extent to which developing
countries often depend on that sector of production.
It is recommended that the profile of livestock be raised to the same
level as that of other agricultural sectors and that strategies for
livestock sectors be based on recent data and poor-relevant issues.
