With support from the European Union (EU), SSLLP in partnership with ICRISAT, IRLI and the Government of Malawi (GoM) is implementing a Crop-Livestock Integrated and Marketing in Malawi (CLIMM) Project which aims at improving livelihoods through sustainable intensification and diversification of market oriented crop-livestock systems. The project is being implemented in Chiradzulu, Balaka and Thyolo districts in the southern region. Since inception, the project has seen the development of infrastructure aimed at improving and promoting goat marketing and processing in Phalula, Balaka in the Southern region of Malawi. As one way of improving livestock marketing in the district, SSLLP is working with a group of local butcher men as an entry point and immediate market for goat farmers to improve the goat value chain in the district. This is being done provision of good infrastructure and capacity building in order to enable goat farmers purchase more livestock at once and be able to process their meat so that they can sell in the market at profitable prices. As one of achieving this SSLLP received 2 refrigerated containers and a building where butcher men can process and store their meat. This in turn will benefit local goat sellers ad demand for goats by butcher men will increase with the installation of the new facilities.
