Targeting

Challenge

We lack a systematic approach of properly describing current scenarios and modelling the impact of possible interventions early on in the product development pipeline to target investment of resources for maximum impact and return.

Impact

Systems which allow us to target geographies and farming systems and identify bottlenecks with genetic (or breeding) interventions and to judge the likely impact as the characteristics of an intervention begin to be clarified.

Solution

We work with partners with the necessary skill sets and ensure free flow of information, both for explicit livestock genetics questions and to ensure that ILRI knowledge finds use in the broader targeting and foresight arena.
