Building Resilience Through Animal Gift (BRAG)
The demand for livestock and livestock products is on the rise all over Cambodia. The projected meat demand in Cambodia from 2014 - 2024 is anticipated to increase from 274,479 to 328,085 tons per year. Livestock is an important agricultural sub-sector that contributes significantly to poverty reduction by enabling exchanging of livestock products for cash income, increase in consumption or by making use of livestock waste for energy and organic fertilizer.
The BRAG project looks at successfully achieving household income on working with the government bodies, particularly Provincial and District Offices of Agriculture, local authorities, communities, and private sectors and by using the gender inclusion lens when assessing households for animal production, especially focusing on the 27% of women-headed households to enhance its target on women for animal production.
