Lessons
1.

Integrated approach from federal to grassroots: The project followed an integrated approach from federal to local levels in which implementing partners such as the Livestock Sector of MoA, National Genetic Improvement Institute, Federal Cooperative Agency and their decentralized structures up to local level work in collaboration. This approach is the best practice UNDP has adopted to achieve results and should be employed in other related projects in the future.


2.

Coordinated breakthrough in animal genetic improvement: The coordination of activities all the way from federal to kebele development centers levels and efficient design of the modus operandi in the mass synchronization campaign has registered a land mark result which enabled promotion of the reproductive and breeding technology among smallholder farmer households. The new approach enabled to reach more farmers, bring attitudinal and behavioral changes at community and expert level with regard to the use and response rate of the reproductive hormone.


3.

Joint project planning and monitoring practices: The UNDP supported livestock development and transformation project helped project stakeholders that joint project planning and monitoring can be considered as best practice and lesson learnt from the process. Joint project planning has enabled project stakeholders to design program based on real problems hindering the development of the sector. This has been witnessed by participants of validation workshop that outstanding achievements, particularly in the dairy and poultry sub-sectors were recorded due to full engagement of sector stakeholders (officials, experts, and UNDP staff) during project design phase in identifying real problems along with best optional interventions to be taken to reverse the problems as well as due to integrated and collaborative coordination by implementing partners and the donor (UNDP). Further, it has been commented that communication of sector staff and UNDP was nicely linked, which contributed to best achievement anticipated results.


4.

No separate structure has been established to implement the project. This increased Government commitment to overtake project results and practices ensuring sustainability.
