Cashing in on camels

Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan (LPPS), LPP’s partner organization in India, has launched a project to promote camels as a source of income in Rajasthan’s deserts.

The project will:

  • Educate and raise awareness of traditional camel breeding communities about new marketing options
  • Support camel breeders in innovating their production systems
  • Establish linkages with research institutes
  • Liaise with and lobby government agencies for an appropriate policy framework
  • Catalyze private sector involvement and investment in manufacturing and marketing camel products
  • Strengthen camel breeders’ organisation to retain ownership of production processes
  • Facilitate establishment of a common platform for all stakeholders in the camels.

LPPS has opened an office in Jaisalmer to manage this project. Contact:
