|Title:||Zambia - Enhanced Smallholder Livestock Investment Programme (E-SLIP) - August 2022|
Situated in the Eastern Province of Zambia, Katete has a history of having suffered one of the worst outbreaks of East Coast Fever (ECF) when the disease first broke out in the country. For years work was carried out towards containing the spread of the disease.
The IFAD supported Enhanced Smallholder Livestock Investment Programme (E-SLIP) has continued to build upon ECF control interventions and has facilitated the production of a stabilate, called Katete stabilate, targeted at controlling the strain of ECF that is predominant in Katete.
The Rural Poor Stimulus Facility (RPSF) funds were used for the project Covid-19 Smart Livestock Production and Productivity Project (RPSF I) under the Enhanced Smallholder Livestock Investment Programme (E-SLIP). The overall goal of the project was to “sustainably build resilience against shocks caused by COVID-19 in livestock production and productivity systems among targeted poor livestock farming households” with the aim to maintain the E-SLIP progress towards its IFAD11 Impact Targets.
Additional RPSF funds were used to scale-up the work and increase the outreach and add complementary activities to the original RPSF work that allowed the sustainability of E-SLIP and RPSF results.
