To celebrate World Environment Day today—5 Jun 2020—the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is focusing on something called ‘participatory rangeland management’.
ILRI and partners carried out a participatory mapping of livestock routes in the intervention areas in Somali and Oromia regions of Ethiopia as a first step in the planning of the HEARD and HEAL projects.
In September, the Rangelands Initiative hosted a panel, Drylands and Rangelands: Harnessing Change, at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) New York, which was organized as a starting point for planning the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration, which will be launched in 2021.
The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is delighted to announce that a session devoted to drylands and rangelands is being incorporated in the agenda of a big event of the estimable Global Landscapes Forum, which is taking place all day tomorrow, in New York City. The theme of this forum, which led by ILRI’s sister CGIAR centre, the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), is ‘Restore the Earth: Opportunities and Partnerships’.
Don’t miss these two superb and VERY short videos describe how new ideas in animal husbandry are transforming Ethiopian incomes, animal pastures and livestock livelihoods.
The especially rich and clearly written results of a livestock-gender-nutrition study in Tanzania deserve wide attention.

ILRI worked with a host of private and public organizations advocating for an International Year of Rangelands and Pastoralists at the fourth biennial United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA), held 11-15 March 2019 in Nairobi.
The following remarks, published last week by Devex during the fourth meeting of the United Nations Environment Assembly, were made by Andrew Tuimur, chief administrative secretary at the Kenya Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Irrigation and a member of the ILRI Board of Trustees.
A new research paper published by scientists of the Mazingira Centre (‘mazingira’ means ‘environment’ in Swahili) of the Nairobi-based International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) reports evidence that greenhouse gas emissions from dung patches in developing countries are ‘likely highly overestimated’ in global livestock emissions estimates.
