Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the preconditions for implementing a sustainable livestock sector in Pakistan during the period (1960-2000). This study examines the economic policies related with production structure, technology and infrastructure available for livestock producers. The production and consumption patterns of meat and milk are analyzed for investment opportunities and institutional development. From this investigation, it is concluded that knowledge intensive system is needed to be implemented that supports infrastructure and institutions to attain sustainable growth. For this purpose, community level network should be formed which focus on improving communication related to resource management, productivity and support services between regions and centre. In short, bottom-up approach is required to be implemented for sustainable livestock production systems which bring a transformation change in entire value chain through institutions.
