Determinants of success in livestock development projects in developing countries: a review of World Bank experience

  • C. de Haan (a1)

Abstract

This paper reviews the major determinants of success in World-Bank-funded livestock development projects. First, it summarizes past project results. Secondly, it analyses the main determinants of success, i.e. the appropriateness of technologies used, the adequacy of producer incentives provided and the capacity of the responsible institutions for project planning and implementation. It illustrates the importance of these factors with experiences from Bank-funded livestock projects. Finally, the paper concludes with some thoughts on trends and requirements of future livestock development and recommendations for future research.
