scientists from CIFOR, ILRI, ICRAF and partners found a way to combine GIS data and remote sensing data, with locally-sourced information on agricultural management, to stratify the landscapes into different kinds of land use types.
A study, led by researchers based at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), decided to look at what contributes to food security within a household and what others can learn from these families. The team also wanted to explore whether there are gender differentiated responses to climate change.
On 28 May 2014, Brian Perry, a former program leader at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and a well-known analyst of livestock-for-development issues, engaged four senior scientists from ILRI’s Livestock Systems and Environment (LSE) program in a ‘hard talk’ interview on the role, relevance and impacts of ILRI’s research in livestock systems and the environment.
