ILRI research is guided by the organization's current mission and strategy.
From January 2012, our research is increasingly delivered through multi-center CGIAR Research Programs.
In March 2013, the institute's research was re-organized into 10 programs (see below). The various teams are being formed and projects and staff are finding their new homes. These research programs will interface with the 8 CGIAR research programs that ILRI is involved in. They draw on support in areas like capacity development, intellectual property, communication and knowledge management.
More information on the programs is coming soon; you can still visit the pages of our former research themes for past information.
