From the investigation, I conclude that a Knowledge intensive system is needed to be implemented that supports infrastructure and institutions to attain sustainable growth. For this purpose, community level network should be formed which focus on improving communication related to resource management, productivity and support services between regions and centre. In short, bottom-up approach is required to be implemented for sustainable livestock production systems which bring a transformation change in entire value chain through institutions. (Less)
