  4. 4. Economic opportunities in the livestock sector • The 4 billion people who live on less than US$10 a day (primarily in developing countries) represent a food market of about $2.9 trillion per year. • 37 billion domestic animals • Asset value $1.4 trillion • Employs at least 1.3 billion people

  15. 15. Mission and vision ILRI envisions a world where all people have access to enough food and livelihood options to fulfill their potential. ILRI’s mission is to improve food and nutritional security and to reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock—ensuring better lives through livestock.
  16. 16. Strategic objective 1 ILRI and its partners will develop, test, adapt and promote science-based practices that—being sustainable and scalable— achieve better lives through livestock.
  17. 17. Strategic objective 2 ILRI and its partners will 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 socio-economic, health and environmental dividends to both poor nations and households.
  18. 18. Strategic objective 3 ILRI and its partners will work to increase capacity amongst 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.
