Our work in Pakistan
Pakistan’s economy is growing well: performance was strong in 2017-18, inflation is low, and poverty and inequality are declining across the country. However, the country’s 200 million people continue to face complex challenges: high rural poverty, food insecurity, low female participation in economic activity and limited broad-based economic growth.
The solutions that MDF has sought to deliver focus on sectors and investments that serve the millions of poor, rural households and food-insecure urban households.
MDF’s work in the dairy, meat and horticulture sectors allows for the promotion of rural and regional inclusiveness for a large proportion of the poor population. The program also promotes the use of sustainable technologies and has introduced energy and water innovations to help address high energy prices and water shortages in Pakistan. This improves agricultural productivity, food security and environmental outcomes.
