Fifty one (51) new water points were constructed, 18 existing ones rehabilitated (the number of rehabilitatable water points were found limited), and 17 heads of natural springs fenced for protection benefitting 800 herding families while improving water access to 195,000 ha of pasture land.
-Seventy six (76) herder groups were developed. Among them, 75 herder groups developed pasture use plans for sustainable pasture management; 71 herder groups made pasture use agreements with respective soum governors and implementing the plans.
-Out of the 76 herder groups, 69 well recipient herder groups made water use agreements with respective soum governors for sustainable use of water points.
Ninety seven (97) herder groups received extension services on community management of pasture and water resources, and income generating activities.
-Sixty seven (67) well recipient herder groups provided 8.9% of the total well construction/rehabilitation cost in cash.
-Seventy five (75) herder groups paid transportation costs to participate training at soum centers.
With the support of local extension officers,
-68 herder groups (176 herding families) started/expanded new/existing income generating activities, including agricultural and livestock husbandry.
-46 herder groups (548 herding families) increased efficiency in livestock husbandry through access to new/rehabilitated water points;
-68 herder groups developed pasture use plans for sustainable pasture management; 58 herder groups made pasture use agreements with respective soum governors; and 52 are implementing the plans.
-75 herder groups (1950 herding families) benefitted from training on various activities.
Need assessment of social services was completed.

-Project performance monitoring by herder groups was conducted in June 2010 and May 2011.
-Annual stakeholders workshops were organized for 2009 and 2010.
Project progress reports and audit reports have been submitted on time.
-Technical reports on water point development and use, pasture use and management, herder group development and agricultural extension development and service were prepared.
-23 brochures, 13 leaflets, 14 posters, banner and anons, 1 magazine were printed and distributed.
-22 national radio programs on livestock, pasture, waterpoint management were produced and broadcasted.
