The interventions under Activity 2 will complement the measures in Activity 1, with the overall aim of improving livestock productivity and incomes. This investment targets key constraints to increased profitability of NCA livestock operations:

  • Reduction of animal diseases and mortality through improved availability of public veterinary services;
