1st to 3 Jan, 2014, the team from the IFAD mission (Market Access & Growth intensification Project) which supports six eastern Dzongkhags in rural Livelihood development programs began from Samdrupjongkhar Dzongkhag. On the arrival evening the group had a short consultative meeting to discuss on the issues and division of the teams for supervising each Dzongkhag for the visit.

For his Dzongkhag the Geog Identified was Phuntshothang, Pemathang and Martshalla Geogs. The team visited Phuntshothang Geog to monitor and see the effectiveness of the green house provided through Project. In the same time visited machinery hiring centre also. On the way the team made a visit to Private Poultry Hatchery and interacted with the owner. The main constraint for the hatchery as expressed by the owner was not getting timely fertile eggs and had to travel long distance (Sarpang) to get it.

On the way to Pemathang Geog the team has visited Broiler farms supported by MAGIP for 11 numbers with the total amount of sum of Nu.1 million. The team met with the beneficiaries and interacted briefly on the outcome of this project scheme. As this scheme was purely collaborative work of Geog and Dzongkhag Livestock Sector the selection of the beneficiaries was focus based on poorest of poor and landless farmers in the Geog. The team was fully satisfied with the progress and the sheds construction they did for this broiler production.

The on-going plastic silage for fodder conservation through improve technology was demonstrated to the team by the Livestock extension Agent in Pemathang Geog. The main motive behind is to conserve during summer season when fodder are plenty and feed during the lean season for the livestock. The team had also inspected the newly constructed low cost agricultural Nursery green house and Mega project areas. As fishery sector is flourishing in the Dungkhag  as source of income  for poor farmers they have visited the few farms in Metothang villages and met with the fish farmers to get insight of their farming practices. The team finally visited Regional Fishery Centre (RCA) to inspect recently constructed Hatchery for fish culture. It is funded by MAGIP to support supply of fingerling to the project areas.

On the second day the team visited the Martshalla Geog. The team met with the members of Dungmanma Dairy Group (DDG) and farm Road user group. On the return journey, the eco-tourism site development at Om Puri at Deothang Geog was visited. They met with the members and discussed in length on the future prospects and sustainability of this eco- park. The team concluded the monitoring and review successfully and thanks all the team members for their kind support.
