Improving the Lives of Communities in ASALs through Indigenous Chicken Production and Marketing

Short description of the project:
This project aims  at improving the lives of communities living in arid and semi-arid lands through indigneous chicken production and marketing.  The main thrust will be to enhance efficiency along the indigenous chicken production and marketing value chains.  This will be done through packaging and disseminating existing technologies developed in previous research efforts. Using a buisness approach the project will train indigneous chicken service providers who will in turn offer services to common interest groups on various aspects of poultry management while linking them to organised markets.
