VetEffecT has been awarded the project "Review of best practices in climate smart pork production" for IFC (Worldbank) (2017). Successful companies and farmers of the future will need to produce with high efficiency (“sustainable intensification”) , use minimal energy, water, nutrients and other resources, cause a minimal carbon footprint, and causing minimal GHG (Green House Gasses) emissions, minimal waste and effluents. Respecting animal welfare, wildlife and the environment are other key conditions.

This dairy development project will be implemented from 2015-2018 in Pakistan in partnership with one of the large dairy processors in the country, aiming to improve the quality and quantity of milk produced by dairy farmers, and supplied for processing.
The overarching goal of the project was to identify needs and propose actions aimed at improving the performance of agricultural SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises), focusing specifically on small and medium farmers. The rationale was to strengthen and increase the economic efficiency of the Egyptian dairy sector by improving small farmers’ livelihoods, linking them to the market, improve their productive and allocative capacity, create employment and reach a sustainable development model.
The main purpose of the contract (G2G08/AG/8/1) was to strengthen the dairy sector and support dairy development in Algeria, to improve trade and agribusiness.
