The Project will contribute to improved sustainability of livelihoods for upland smallholders in northern Lao PDR. The immediate outcome is to improve livestock productivity and profitability under integrated upland farming systems through (i) enhanced productivity of village livestock systems, (ii) capacity building for community driven development (CDD), and (iii) support for implementation management. The Project will contribute to sustainable livelihoods through improved cash incomes, food security, and nutrition for some of the poorest segments of the population. It will achieve this by providing access to appropriate technology, management and marketing systems, rationalizing household labor requirements, and improving returns to labor. It will contribute to gender equity by providing upland ethnic women with opportunities and support to participate in the selection and implementation of community and household investments in livelihoods improvements.
