Reviving the Indigenous Poultry Breed - Kadaknath
INGP04 - Enhancing Livelihoods of Tribals Through Niche Market Opportunities
This Note showcases a government initiative to promote and introduce in new areas, indigenous poultry - Kadaknath, in order to enable bio diversity conservation as well as enhance livelihoods that can reap benefits for the tribal poultry rearers as well as maintain their poultry heritage.
Although the project is fairly recent and support of the implementing agency is presently continuing, a number of lessons emerging from the practice can help future replication thereby establishing it as a sustainable community initiative.
