MetadataShow full item record
The Policy Alternatives for Livestock Development (PALD) project aims to facilitate, through training, research and policy analysis, the transition from a command to a market economy in the extensive livestock sector in Mongolia. The project, run jointly by the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, UK, the Research Institute of Animal Husbandry and the Institute of Agricultural Economics in Mongolia, is sponsored by the Mongolian Ministry of Agriculture, the Supreme Council of Agricultural Cooperatives and the Council of Agricultural Science at the Mongolian Academy of Sciences. The main PALD programme will, funding permitting, start in 1992, and will last for three years. Thanks to the availability of limited funding from several sources,1 it was possible for preliminary work to start in 1991, in order to prepare for full project activities in 1992. This short report summarises the conclusions of that work, which is described in more detail in three PALD Working Papers available separately.2 PALD has three main thrusts - training, primary field research, and policy analysis and debate - and progress was made in each of these during 1991.
