Livestock manures, the undigested and excreted biomass of feeds and fodders fed to farm animals and poultry, from conventional management systems, are traditionally considered as waste. This waste circulates in the environment reducing air, water and soil quality and affecting public health, causing social and economic impacts (see Annex-1 for details).
This document demonstrates how a system of Integrated Livestock Manure Management (ILMM), backed by adequate policy and regulatory frameworks and investment infrastructure, could transform this waste stream into a valuable resource for Bangladesh. ILMM can provide multiple benefits related to: improved livelihoods for farmers, especially women farmers; improved public health; improved soil condition; reduced pollution; mitigation of climate change; and associated social and economic benefits
