The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has dedicated USD 10 million to a five-year initiative aimed at enhancing dairy farming in Ethiopia. This project's primary objectives are to increase milk production and productivity, enhance the capabilities of dairy farmers, and establish connections between dairy farmers and agro-industries.
Han-Deog, the Country Director of KOICA Ethiopia Office, emphasized that this endeavor is part of the agency's commitment to supporting Ethiopia's agricultural development. He highlighted the fact that Ethiopia possesses a substantial livestock population; however, the current milk production falls short of meeting the country's demands. The project seeks to bridge this gap by providing training and other forms of assistance to dairy farmers. Furthermore, it aims to establish connections between dairy farmers and agro-industries, thereby creating new markets for milk and milk products.
