The Project Consists of the following Components and Sub-components:
Climate Smart Rangeland Management :This component promotes best practices in natural resource management on degraded rangelands/grazing areas and introduces climate change adaptation measures as a basis for a climate resilient Wool and Mohair Value Chain.
The objective of this component is to promote a sustainable system of climate resilient communal grazing and rangeland management with the aim of improving livestock nutrition, maximizing production and returns and avoiding losses and damages from climate-related events.
The Component is divided into two sub-components
- Sub Component A1: Effective Information for Climate-smart rangeland management
- Sub-component A2: Climate-smart Participatory Rangeland management…read more
Improved Merino sheep And Angora Goat Production And Management:The objective of this component is to increase the quantity and quality of wool and mohair produced by smallholder farmers in Lesotho. The activities under this Component address the identified deficiencies in animal nutrition, breeding, and health to raise Production standards and maximise returns for smallholder producers. The expected outcome of component B will be that smallholder sheep and goat producers increase the production and productivity of superior quality of wool and mohair. This will require WAMPP to intervene in all three factors affecting livestock productivity (i) feeding, (ii) breeding, (iii) animal health.
The component is divided into three sub-components:
1)Sub Component B1: Improved Livestock Nutrition
2) Sub Component B2: Improved Breeding
3)Sub Component B3: Improved Animal Health….read more
Wool and Mohair Processing and Marketing : The objective of this component is to increase market return from wool and mohair systems for livestock producers through improved quality of the fibre while at the same time stimulating a niche cottage industry for wool and mohair tapestry products, and providing a market outlet for unproductive animals that need to be removed from the rangeland. Value Chain challenges will be addressed in three subcomponents: a) tackling value chain improvements, b) supporting cottage industry and niche market development and c) promotion of livestock auctions and district slabs.
The component is divided into three sub components:
1)Value Chain based Enterprise Enhancement
2) Cottage Industry and Niche Market Development
3) Promotion of Livestock Auctions and District Slaughter Slabs…read more
