Small Scale Poultry Farming and Poverty Reduction in South Asia
From Good Practices to Good Policies in Bangladesh, Bhutan and India
The South Asia Pro Poor Livestock Policy Programme (SA PPLPP) has identified and documented a range of Good Practices along the poultry supply chain in Bangladesh, Bhutan and India. These include interventions related to the provision of inputs, management and improved husbandry practices, health service delivery and the marketing of live birds and eggs.
This paper reviews and draws lessons out of 11 Good Practices on small‐scale poultry farming, documented by SA PPLPP, in collaboration with a variety of public and private actors, including national and state governments, NGOs and private companies. The document attempts to identify gaps -in the current policy and institutional framework in Bangladesh, Bhutan and India, to enable improvements in small-holder poultry rearing.
