Support for the Recovery of Livestock Production Within Northern Aleppo -Phase II

In response to the ongoing need for the rehabilitation and improvement of the Agriculture Sector in Syria which suffered a significant loss of livestock – from 2,892,521 in 2012 to 416,000 in 2021, the SRTF approved phase two of the previously implemented ‘Support for the Recovery of Livestock Production in Northern Aleppo Governorate’, that builds on the success of the SRTF’s phase one project with the aim to continue to secure high-quality, affordable fodder and veterinary vaccines to farmers and their livestock in the Northern Aleppo governorate.

 

In terms of coverage, the project will support six local councils in regions that have been severely impacted by drought and where large concentrations of farmers cannot secure sufficient fodder for their livestock. The project will contribute towards sustaining the lives of livestock and the welfare of farmers who rely on their livestock for milk and meat production as their primary source of income. To achieve the needed results, the SRTF MU will procure and deliver the following of goods and consumables:

 

  • 1,900 tons of feed supplements for dairy sheep and goats.
  • 1,000 tons of feed supplements for cattle (dairy) .
  • Various Types of Vaccines.
  • Vaccine consumable accessories (gloves, masks, disposable syringes, etc.)
  • One electronic balance (with a range of 1-100 kg)
  • Two portable belt conveyors
  • One mobile bag-sewing machine
  • 10 Motorcycles.
  • Vehicle for transporting employees (9 passenger capacity).

 

In addition to the above, consultancy services and non - consulting services related to all inputs of the project will be available upon request.

As a result, the below outcomes are expected from this project:  

  • Decrease livestock mortality rates from disease and hunger.
  • Increase the production, availability, and affordability of meat and milk products.
  • Increase the capacity and experience of the livestock directorates.
  • Improve services delivered by the IE to their respective direct beneficiaries.
  • Improve the livelihoods and income of farmers and their families that will directly benefit from the project’s deliverables.
  • Improve local council satisfaction and perception of delivered IE services.

Employment opportunities for veterinarians, veterinarian assistants, and other workers associated with livestock and animal husbandry (e.g., livestock transportation, animal processing, meat distribution, etc.) are also expected as part of this project.

 

The EUR 1.5 million budget project is expected to directly benefit 11,500 livestock breeders whose livestock will receive vaccination. Of that number, 2,680 sheep and goat breeders with average ownership of 15 heads, and 1,368 cow breeders who own at least two cows, will receive feed supplement as well. Indirectly, the project will benefit 57,500 estimated family members of livestock breeders in the project area populated by an estimated 250,000 people.
