Endogenous livestock development: Strengthening local initiatives using resources sustainably

Endogenous livestock development means putting small-scale livestock keepers and pastoralists at the centre of their own development. It means building on what they already do, and supporting their initiatives to improve their livelihoods, instead of imposing “solutions” from outside. This booklet outlines the endogenous livestock development approach and introduces the ELD Network.
