  • Improving farm productivity through; the establishment of practical dairy training farms, support on-farm investments, strengthen cooperatives and improve dairy services to farmers
  • Improve milk quality through the introduction and promotion of quality based payment systems
  • Improve regulation and investment facilitation
  • Improve household nutrition by; supporting the introduction of milk in schools and promoting dietary diversity at household level
