Enabling agricultural policies for benefitting smallholders in dairy, citrus and mango industries in Pakistan

This project aims to develop policies that benefit smallholders in the Punjab and Sindh provinces, Pakistan.
Broad-based and effectively implemented policies are needed to improve the livelihoods of Pakistan's 56 million+ smallholder farmers in dairy and livestock, mangoes and citrus.
This policy-focused project complements social, technical and marketing research in the Australia-Pakistan Agriculture Sector Linkages Program. The research will review existing policies and identify constraints and opportunities. It will also analyse the policy-making process in these provinces to identify departmental responsibilities and capacity gaps. It will develop, evaluate and define implementation paths for new enabling policies.
The project will improve both agencies' capacity and the livelihoods of Pakistan's smallholder farmers.
