Built the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock

Under the leadership of IESC, Land O’Lakes provided technical assistance to CBCMP, a project that helped to build the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock. Currently, the Ministry provides extension services to 80 percent of the population, which is heavily dependent on agriculture for livelihoods and income. Through short-term consultants and volunteers, we provided technical expertise in the areas of organizational capacity and change management to the Ministry, including its private sector development units, which improved its ability to create a more robust agricultural sector. Through an award funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA) led this project utilizing a consortium of six partners who were focused on creating sustainable, economic growth initiatives in developing countries. IESC and Land O’Lakes are VEGA members.
