  • A. Project Development Objective

    1. Project development objective: (see Annex 1)

    The Emergency Farm Reconstruction Project (EFRP) has the objective of helping jumpstart agriculturalproduction over the next two to three cropping seasons and to support re-launching of the rural economy byinvesting in key farm assets (cattle and farm mechanization) and key agricultural services (veterinaryservices, and policy analysis and formulation capacity). In doing so the project would support vulnerablehouseholds in targeted villages and municipalities in attaining minimum levels of agriculture production andfood security through replaced farm assets and improved veterinary services.

    2. Key performance indicators: (see Annex 1)

    Key performance indicators of the development objective would include the following:

    * Increase of share of land cultivated for agricultural production in targeted villages.

    * Increase of yield levels for crop and livestock production in targeted villages.

    Increase in number of vulnerable households in targeted villages consuming adequate amount ofmilk and bread according to dietary standards.

    * High share of distributed anirnals and their offspring still in beneficiary households and used forrestocking purposes at project end.

    Number of veterinarians operating in Kosovo (ratio per animal and area); increased use of, and satisfactionwith, veterinary services; reduction in number of animal death resulting from unavailability of veterinaryservices or required veterinary equipment; increase in artificial insemination (AI) services provided andused.
