A paper by researchers at ILRI reviews the role of herbivores in sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa. Augustine Ayantunde is nominated as a member of the Advisory Committee for the 2022 International Symposium on the Nutrition of Herbivores.
Researchers analysed and quantified the potential food security impact of boosting a set of sustainable intensification options in Burkina Faso to better identify which technologies would fit the characteristics of specific households.
Using a computer-based simulation to compute the environmental impacts of livestock keeping offers a neutral entry point to the negotiation on topics that are usually difficult to discuss.
This project brief explains key scaling up approaches used in the Feed the Future Mali Livestock Scaling Technology Program, the main goals and scope of its innovation platforms and the stakeholders involved.
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.
A new project led by Lance Robinson and Todd Crane from the Livestock Systems and Environment program at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), under the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) flagship on policies and institutions for climate-resilient food systems, is investigating the links between climate adaptation and livestock science, policy and practice.
At this week’s international conference on Integrated Systems Research for Sustainable Intensification in Smallholder Agriculture, Randall Ritzema gave a presentation explaining ‘what works where for which farm household’ that estimates the effects of different interventions on food availability across household distributions in East and West Africa.
