Mazingira centre

A state-of-the-art environmental research and education centre has been established at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). Known as the Mazingira (Swahili for environment) Centre, this facility is a collaboration between ILRI, the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).

 

 

The Centre’s goal is to enhance the infrastructure and capacity for environmental research in East Africa with a focus on livestock systems and land use change. It has the capacity to measure and analyse a number of environmental parameters brought about by agricultural and livestock production.
