The Ethiopia Sheep and Goat Productivity Improvement Program (ESGPIP) is a USAID- funded five-year project designed to reduce constraints to increased productivity of small ruminants in Ethiopia through appropriate interventions. The ESGPIP supports USAID’s long-term strategic goal of realizing a more peaceful, secure, prosperous, and healthy Ethiopia, as well as strategic objectives of increasing human capacity and social resiliency and private sector-led economic growth.  The Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) of Texas and Langston University (LU) of Oklahoma work with the Ethiopian Government’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MoARD) to implement the ESGPIP under a Cooperative agreement signed between the USAID and the PVAMU on 22 September 2005.
