Partnership for Green and Productive Dairy in Nigeria

The dairy partnership project in Nigeria is focused on developing a climate-resilient, sustainable, and productive dairy value chain. This initiative aligns with both Nigerian and Danish strategic priorities, aiming to contribute to economic growth, job creation, and improved livelihoods. It involves enhancing farmers’ and their cooperatives’ competencies in sustainable and productive farming. A key goal is to increase milk supply by 900%, fostering profitable businesses throughout the green supply chain from cow to consumer.

Expected outcomes include the development of sustainable, climate-resilient, and more productive dairy farming practices. The Farmers in Damau Household Milk Farm will benefit from improved services from their cooperative. Additionally, sustainable processing and sale of dairy products are anticipated to increase value for Arla and lead to increased employment opportunities. The project will also actively engage in stakeholder forums to share evidence-based knowledge and advocate for a responsible and sustainable dairy sector in Nigeria.
