Nepal: Community Livestock Development Project - 2010

Women have significant roles in the livestock subsector, particularly in day-today decisions on animal grazing, collection of water, fodder and forest leaf-litter, watering the livestock, application of compost, and the use and home-based processing of livestock products. Their limited access to resources and decision making power in livestock management are serious constraints to their involvement in livestock enterprises offering greater returns on their labor, and, hence, higher income.

A comprehensive gender action plan (GAP) that includes specific activities, features, and targets for women’s participation under each project component facilitates the achievement of gender-inclusive project outcomes.
