The cornerstone of the Chars Livelihoods Programme’s (CLP’s) approach to poverty alleviation is the provision of investment capital with which participants purchase income-generating assets. Most participants choose cattle. The CLP has been promoting crossbred, rather than local cattle, as they are widely viewed as being more profitable. This study explores whether this is indeed the case, in order to assess whether the CLP should continue to promote crossbred cattle as the programme moves into its second phase.
