The present intervention concerns the Livestock Development Project. It’s comprised of two separate but complementary sub-projects, namely (a) production development sub-project and the research and training sub-project. The proposed project should have an immense and far reaching effect, not only on livestock production in the Gambia, but perhaps eventually on a continental scale. The ADF should participate in financing the following components: (i) infrastructure and civil works; (ii) provision of vehicles and equipment; (iii) purchase of livestock, feed and drugs; (iv) provision of technical assistance and training.
The project aims at the rational exploitation of the trypanotolerant n’dama breed of cattle in an effort to develop and expand livestock production in tsetse infested areas of the Gambia.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are the livestock owners, as a group, to whom services should be provided to improve their livestock production methods.
