This paper utilizes a cross-country panel of 83 developing countries to examine how changes in cohort size are correlated with subsequent employment outcomes for workers at different ages. The results depend on countries' level of development. In low-income countries, young adults that are born into smaller cohorts are less likely to work, but school attendance remains unchanged. In middle-income countries, young adults in smaller cohorts are less likely to be unemployed and more likely to work outside of agriculture.

Gender issues should be considered in the planning of livestock development programs. Unfortunately, rarely is the data available to show the diverse yet often complementary roles and responsibilities in livestock production and gender differences in terms of access and control of livestock. This challenges policy makers and donors in developing gender friendly policies and identifying investments in the sector that fosters asset build up and income generation for women through the livestock sector.

The Second Rural Sector Support Project (RSSP) aims to revitalize the rural economy in Rwanda and improve the quality of life of the rural poor through the transfer of technical and financial resources for sustainable rural development. Particular attention will be paid to the needs of vulnerable groups among those displaced; especially those below the poverty line, the landless, the elderly, women and children, indigenous groups and the ethnic minorities or other displaced persons who may not be protected through Rwandan land compensation legislation.

The Uganda Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry, and Fisheries (MAAFF), including the department of animal production and marketing and the department of livestock health and entomology in the directorate of animal resources, is mandated to formulate and implement livestock sector policies, plans, and programs, as well as to control and manage animal epidemic diseases. Reliable livestock data and statistics are critical for MAAIF's mandate and generated by a variety of sources, including administrative records, surveys, and censuses.
