Goats in Paradise: (Re)introducing local dairy goat-production in Dominica. 2020

This TOF project’s aim is to strengthen the domestic food security and agricultural climate resilience in the small Island state of Dominica in the Caribbean.

In collaboration with local vegetable farmers and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries of Dominica (MoAFF) and other stakeholders, TOF hopes to design and set up a pilot/model farm with dairy goats, climate resilient livestock-housing, milk-processing facilities as well as composting facilities for manure.

“End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”

In line with the second of the UN`s development goals (SDGs) this project will strengthen the livelihoods of Dominican farming communities as well as supplying the local market with locally produced healthy dairy products.

The project will be conducted according to sustainable vernacular agro-ecologic principles where the focus lies on the ecologic, economic and social dimensions of agriculture and community-life. TOF endeavors here are aimed also to be replicable in other areas.

The planned site for the pilot-farm is upper Giraudel, Saint George Parish – popularly known as “Paradise”.
Responsible: Sankar-Øyan
