ILRI research contributes to the CGIAR impact area on Poverty reduction, livelihoods and jobs.
More than 25% of the world’s population lives on less than US $3.20 a day, making a healthy diet unaffordable for more than 3 billion people. And poverty disproportionately affects rural areas, where agriculture is the predominant livelihood activity. Improving the livelihoods, jobs, and incomes of small-scale producers and other vulnerable people in agrifood value chains is crucial to the wellbeing of millions, and to the world’s ability to feed a growing population.
