ILRI research is guided by the organization's current mission and strategy.
ILRI carries out its research in East, Southern, and West Africa, in South and Southeast Asia, and in China (see what we do by country).
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). These research programs 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.
The research programs:
Animal science for sustainable productivity
BecA-ILRI Hub (includes BioInnovate Africa)
Feed and forages bioscience
Food safety and zoonoses
Livelihoods, gender, impact and innovation
