Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting to Develop the Bangladesh Dairy Sector
The USAID-facilitated Bangladesh Livestock Coordination group consists of seven livestock projects funded by seven different donor agencies whose purpose is to improve the productivity of the Bangladesh livestock sector, particularly the more than 35 million cattle in a targeted region that has significantly lagged behind the northern region of the country. It also aims to harmonize capacity building activities and improved technologies being promoted and to create a sustainable, private-sector-based approach to activity implementation. Through collaborating, learning and adapting, significant progress has been made in training and moving toward a private-sector approach. As a result of this group, more farmers from the southern region are receiving more standardized training than ever before, and more improved technologies are being introduced.
This case study was submitted as part of USAID's CLA Case Competition, held in August 2015. This collection of examples illustrate the diversity of ways collaborating, learning, and adapting approaches are being operationalized in the field.
