  2. 2. Strategic Objectives • Develop, test, adapt and promote science-based practices that—being sustainable and scalable—achieve better lives through livestock. • Provide compelling scientific evidence in ways that persuade decision-makers—from farms to boardrooms and parliaments—that smarter policies and bigger livestock investments can deliver significant socioeconomic, health and environmental dividends to both poor nations and households. • Work to increase capacity among ILRI’s key stakeholders and the institute itself so that they can make better use of livestock science and investments for better lives through livestock. 2
