ILRI in the CGIAR Research Programs

  1. 1. RESEARCH PROGRAM ON Livestock and Fish led by ILRI together with WorldFish, CIAT, and ICARDA The program aims to increase the productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems in sustainable ways, making meat, milk and fish more available and affordable across the developing world. The program’s approach is characterized by: a whole value chain approach; focus on selected livestock and fish systems that can be transformed; partnering for impact at scale and research and technology development designed to have sustainable impact. It focuses on eight selected value chains: dairy in Tanzania and India; small ruminants in Mali and Ethiopia; pigs in Vietnam and Uganda; dual purpose cattle in Nicaragua and aquaculture in Egypt. Research themes cover animal feeds, breeding and genetics, health, value chain development, gender and learning, and targeting sustainable interventions. RESEARCH PROGRAM ON Dryland Systems led by ICARDA ILRI conducts research on mitigating vulnerability (related to payments for ecosystem services, and options for livestock insurance among others); sustainable intensification of crop–livestock systems including trade-offs and system analyses and work on innovation systems and livestock–gender interactions. RESEARCH PROGRAM ON Policies, Institutions and Markets led by IFPRI ILRI conducts research to bring about changes in organizational behaviour, markets performance and policy for more effective value chains. This process features the development and use of tools for ex ante and ex post analysing of changes such as technology adoption, improved transactions and product makeup within value chains. The analysis evaluates aspects such as gender impacts and distribution of benefits of change among producers, consumers and other actors. ILRI's use of these tools and new modelling techniques has raised the profile of livestock within the CRP portfolio. led by IFPRI ILRI leads a theme of this research program on the prevention and control of agriculture associated diseases, which includes food borne diseases, zoonoses and emerging infectious diseases. RESEARCH PROGRAM ON Water, Land and Ecosystems led by IWMI ILRI research in this program focuses largely on livestock water interactions in relation to crop–livestock systems in the Nile and Volta basins. Research on payments for ecosystem services and other aspects of dryland pastoral systems may also be addressed. led by CIAT ILRI’s research includes systems analyses, macro and household level modelling; climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies in livestock systems. RESEARCH PROGRAM ON Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics led by IITA ILRI conducts research on sustainable intensification in crop–livestock systems, including trade off and systems analyses; livestock environment research using innovation approaches and integrating livestock–gender interactions.
