Between 2007 and 2013, an IDA-supported project established 3,560 classroom libraries in all 383 rural primary schools. Each school received more than 160 books, benefiting a total of 130,000 students. More than 4,000 rural primary teachers were trained.
About 19,500 herders purchased insurance for livestock loss during the 2013-2014 cycle, an increase of 21% over the past cycle. All herders eligible for compensation received indemnity payments.
