This presentation was given at the AAAE Conference on Agricultural
Growth, Poverty Reduction and Millennium Development Goals in Africa
Accra, Ghana, 21 August 2007. The FAO's Pro-Poor Livestock Policy
Initiative (PPLPI) was introduced with a set of Livestock Development
Goals (LDGs) to emphasise the relevance of the project to the developing
world and conformity with the United Nations Milliennium Development
Goals (MDGs). Livestock Development Indicators were discussed as a means
of measuring the degree of progress made towards the LDGs. The specific
application of the PPLPI to Senegal was then outlined, with economic and
demographic information to support the analysis of progress towards LDGs
in that country.
