LPP was founded in 1992 by a small group of veterinary and other concerned professionals and it was registered as a non-profit/charitable organisation into the county register of Darmstadt (Germany) in 1993. Over the years, LPP has developed into a research and resource organization for holistic and people-centred livestock development and promotes the concept of endogenous livestock development relying on indigenous knowledge and institutions, local animal genetic resources and feed as an alternative to the mainstream paradigm of livestock development that leads to industrialisation.

Our current main thrust areas are Livestock Keepers Rights, Biocultural Community Protocols and Value-Addition/Niche Marketing for Products of local breeds.
