A milk surplus and deficit map can be compared with maps showing poverty rates and poverty densities in order to plan more pro-poor dairy interventions. Such overlays can, for example, pinpoint locations with multiple deprivations (e.g., high levels of poverty and a shortfall of milk) or with greater potential to reach a higher number of poor in an investment area.

This map looks at the high milk surplus areas (with a surplus greater than 3,000 liters of milk per square kilometer per year) in relation to poverty density.
