ILRI has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to provide a framework of cooperation in common areas of concern, among them sustainable livestock development, One Health, and climate mitigation and resilience.
The Rural Household Multiple Indicator Survey (RHoMIS) has been used to access and analyse data collected from 13,000-plus households from 21 countries.
As part of efforts to build the capacity of pastoralists and livestock sector stakeholders to respond and adapt to these changes in climate change in rangelands such as Kajiado’s and other livestock production systems in eastern Africa, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is implementing the Programme for Climate Smart Livestock (PCSL) in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda.

One of the Programme for Climate-Smart Livestock Systems (PCSL) components is exploring climate change adaptation to understand how innovative pastoralists and agropastoralists are changing their practices to interact better with their changing environments.
A recent CGIAR study led by researchers from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) sought to explore issues surrounding aid delivery in pastoral communities, particularly during drought and provide guidance to humanitarian and development aid actors.
Participatory Rangeland Management is now being integrated into a One Health approach by ILRI (International Livestock Research Institute) and partners VSF-Suisse (Vétérinaires sans Frontières Suisse) and CCM (Comitato Collaborazione Medica). This combines the health of people, livestock and rangelands, and the linkages between them.
The 46th session of the Committee on Food Security was held between 14-18 October 2019, and a number of Rangelands Initiative partners supported and facilitated side events on rangelands and pastoralism.
A three-year study in Ethiopia reviews the application and impacts on participatory rangeland management in.
From January 2020 onwards the entire RHoMIS system will be upgraded to version 1.6. This update will bring together the various elements of the toolkit into a coherent whole.
