The objective of the workshop was to discuss, align and collaborate on specific areas in order to ensure follow up on CLP’s markets interventions and the market institutions (producer groups, char business centers) in the livestock sector, beyond CLP’s project closure in March 2016.
Mr Mathew Pritchard, Team Leader and Mr Roland Charles, Operations Director from CLP along with Ms Fouzia Nasreen, General Manager and Mr Subrata Kumar, Market Development Director from M4C spoke at the event. The workshop was attended by CLP, CLP’s implementing organisations (IMO) and M4C project staffs, as well as representatives from Practical Action. The participants discussed challenges, lessons learnt and recommendations and put forward an action plan for M4C to initiate interventions in the livestock sector on the chars. The workshop enhanced networking and relationship building among the practitioners, who have been involved in improving the market systems and livelihoods of the northern char dwellers, in various capacities.
