The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) project in Armenia

The Syunik and Vayots Dzor provinces in southern Armenia produce things Armenian consumers have a big appetite for: high quality beef and dairy products. Many families have cattle but are unable to make the most of their livestock:

Poor animal fodder and limited access to veterinarians and to markets for their produce mean most farmers in the region live at subsistence level. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) project is helping farmers from 100 rural communities to increase their milk and meat production, thereby increasing their incomes. Around 14,000 families (almost 60,000 people) benefit directly and indirectly from the project. This will be achieved by improving animal health through supporting local veterinarian services, supporting better access to milk and meat markets, and promoting the learning and sharing of know-how among farmers.
