Between 2007 and 2020 ACIAR funded a series of projects in Laos and Cambodia focussing on the management of livestock disease at the village level, with the goal of improving smallholder livelihoods by reducing livestock mortality and morbidity through capacity building and better policy and practice. 

This evaluation reviews the short-term and medium-term project outcomes - positive biosecurity, animal health and reproduction outcomes in participating villages - and examines the extent to which the ACIAR projects contributed to these outcomes.
