RDCP II Impact Report

Originally published on December 8, 2016.

Since 2007, with funding from the U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID), Land O’Lakes International Development has been working with the Government of Rwanda to institute a dual-pronged approach to build up dairy at both the national and district levels to improve smallholder production, increase consumer demand, and provide regulatory support for safe, high quality products.

This report looks back at the impacts and achievements of the $15 million USAID-funded Rwanda Dairy Competitiveness Program II (RDCP II), implemented by Land O’Lakes International Development from 2012-2017.
