CfP works on three initiatives in an attempt to strengthen pastoral livelihoods. Milk Matters focuses on facilitating the procurement of milk from pastoral populations by a wide range of agencies. Pastoral Dhanda principally explores ways by which an entrepreneurial ecosystem with an interest in pastoral dairy products might be strengthened. The Desi Oon Initiative works with researchers, craft-based organizations and government agencies to rebuild markets for indigenous wool. Each of these is expanded below.
