ALive initiative | Partnership for Africa Livestock Development, Poverty alleviation and Sustainable Growth in Africa
ALive is a regional partnership based on a multi-stakeholders Platform to reposition the African livestock sector into the development agendas of the national, regional and international policy makers, by emphasizing its crucial impacts in terms of poverty alleviation and sustainable economic growth and its overall contribution to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
This platform results from strong demands from the African countries, draws lessons from recent experiences ("livestock evolution") and takes into consideration rational livestock development perspectives (“livestock Revolution”).
More specifically, the partnership intends to improve livestock sector contribution by:
i) increasing participation of beneficiaries, collaboration between donors and partners, and also ensuring the durability of regional and local institutions,
ii) improving knowledge of the sector and strategies & action plans formulation, both at the national and regional level,
iii) promoting collaboration / regional integration, knowledge sharing, sub-regional training and strengthening of capacity building,
iv) inserting these results in current or future operational programs, initiated by ALive partners.
