The Farmer-to-Farmer Livestock Marketing Project spanning five years from 2013 to 2018 aims to increase access to meat and milk products to various markets, and to provide technical assistance in certification processes, manufacturing of products, and marketing. The company Cooproleche in Nueva Guinea, El Triunfo, Nicaragua sought FAVACA for assistance in improving the quality and shelf life of their yogurt products. Ohio State University Professor Melvin Pascall, who has produced academic scholarship in this field, took two trips this year to Nicaragua from September 7 - 14, and September 28 - October 5.

The overall objective of the 2014-2018 Farmer to Farmer Program in the Dominican Republic is to increase the resilience of vulnerable populations to the unpredictable impacts of global climate change. By focusing on water management, we hope to achieve this objective through a multi-pronged approach that focuses on: 1) proper management of the Yaque del Norte river basin, 2) improved knowledge of producers, technicians, and community members on ways to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change on agricultural land, and 3) training on the promotion and implementation of strategies and technologies to adapt and mitigate the effects of climate change.
