Ethiopia: Livestock Plan to Boost Economy and Lift Millions out of Poverty
In July 2015, Ethiopia released a summary of its forthcoming Livestock Master Plan (LMP), which is the governmental blueprint for directing the continued transformation of the country’s livestock sector. The LMP’s implementation is intended to strengthen the livestock sector, enhance Ethiopia’s nutritional and food security situation, improve resilience, and spur economic growth that will lift nearly 2.36 million households out of poverty. The LMP could spur demand for certain imported feed inputs (e.g. soy), some of which may come from the United States.
