Developing capacity among partners to implement evidence-based development


Capacity development by the Livestock and Irrigation Value chains for Ethiopian smallholders (LIVES) project in Ethiopia has resulted in training of more than 18,100 farmers, 1,200 private agri-business entrepreneurs and provided training of trainers courses on various subjects for 900 public sector actors.


From October 2017, ILRI has supported the World-Bank-funded Sindh Agricultural Development Project in Pakistan to help develop the capacity of various livestock sector actors in production, processing, food hygiene, business management and marketing.


ILRI is also supporting a five-year, USD45 million development initiative funded by USAID Food For Peace in Mali, with a range of technical assistance and capacity development interventions to strengthen food, nutrition and income security among poor households and improve their resilience to future shocks.
