Ethiopia: USDA’s Investment in Ethiopia's Livestock Feed Sector Pays Off

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Under USDA’s Food for Progress Program, USDA and ACDI/VOCA are working together to support the development of Ethiopia’s livestock feed sector through the Feed for Enhancement for Ethiopian Development project (FEED). This report highlights the positive impact this multi-year project has had in building and strengthening Ethiopia's livestock feed production capacity, while at the same time improving the country’s resilience and food security. As an example, the government of Ethiopia has contracted with seven FEED project Unions to supply nearly 5,000 metric tons of feed to the drought affected areas.
