This poster, prepared for the ILRI@40 series of events, explains a framework that is being developed for assessing the environmental impact of the livestock industry’s development scenarios.
To address the environmental problems faced by the East African region, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has invested in an environmental research centre. Dubbed the Mazingira centre, the facility is based at the ILRI and has the capacity to measure a set of environmental parameters including livestock system GHG emissions, water flows as well as water and soil quality. In an interview with David Pelster, one of the scientists leading the initiative, we get to hear more about it.
