Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth (REGAL-AG)

Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth (REGAL-AG) activity increases economic growth in pastoral communities.  Improved livestock management can enhance pastoralists’ incomes and help them endure the effects of climate change and natural disasters. Increasing farmers’ prosperity and resilience also benefits their communities. REGAL-AG is a part of the U.S. Government Feed the Future initiative for addressing global hunger, food security and agricultural livelihoods.
 
REGAL-AG helps men and women connect to markets, expands access to quality feed, fodder, medicine and services, such as finance,  insurance and veterinary to increase their productivity. REGAL-AG supports development led by the private-sector by awarding grants to entrepreneurs with promising business ideas to boost the livestock sector and generate local employment.
