PROGEBE Logo Design Competition

The Regional Project “Sustainable Management of Endemic Ruminant Livestock in West Africa” (PROGEBE) covering The Gambia, Guinea, Mali and Senegal is launching a competition to select its logo.

PROGEBE aims are community-based conservation and management of endemic ruminant livestock; better understanding of existing genetic diversity and its potential; development of strategies for improved utilization in evolving production systems; policies that affect the livestock and livestock products targeted, especially those related to market access and marketing channels to facilitate commercialization by smallholder livestock keepers; and strengthening capacities of relevant actors to promote sustainable management of livestock resources.

The project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the African Development Bank (AfDB)
