Summary for Project title: ZC0261: Development of a Dairy Toolbox.
A new 'toolbox' has been developed to make it easier for organizations
to provide easy-tounderstand information to anyone involved in
smallholder dairy production. Known as the Smallholder Dairy Toolbox
(SDTB), its software allows users to access useful information and
provide it in formats that are appropriate to a whole range of
stakeholders—from farmers and delivery agents to planners and policy
makers. The toolbox is intended to overcome the fact that the training
and information materials currently available are often inadequate and
difficult to access— especially for farmers and extension workers who
have very little spare time. It is available on CD or as a download from
the project website, and is already being used in some parts of Kenya.
The CD has the following information for this output: Description,
Validation, Current Situation, Current Promotion, Impacts On Poverty,
Environmental Impact. Attached PDF (11 pp.) taken from the CD.
