ILRI and the African Union Commission recently sponsored a breakout session at the 15th annual CAADP Partnership Platform Meeting on how investing in livestock can accelerate Africa’s economic transformation.
The ‘Bihar Livestock Master Plan’, launched earlier this year, describes public and private investments that can significantly grow and sustain and modernize the livestock sector in this state.
A new paper, published this month in Global Food Security and led by scientists at ILRI, confirms a wealth of similar evidence showing that, with sufficient and targeted investments in their livestock sectors, low- and middle-income countries can achieve both better nutrition and incomes for the poor and greatly reduced greenhouse gas emission and agricultural water use.
To help make the case for greater investment in sustainable livestock, the International Livestock Research Institute invites you to share stories from your work that show how livestock interventions, initiatives and investments make a positive difference to the lives and livelihoods of people and communities in developing countries.
The ascent of women: A replay of a few of our favourite feminist pieces
Care about ‘sustainable agriculture’ in Africa? Then you should care about livestock. Take a look at the evidence as reported earlier this year in a scientific paper published by researchers at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) this month.
Agricultural researchers working to enhance traditional pasture conservation by Tanzania’s pastoral Maasai communities are systematically addressing gendered norms and roles to ensure that they don’t end up hurting more than helping these communities.
