Website and App development
The Livestock Production Systems in Zimbabwe (LIPS-ZIM) project is being implemented in six provinces in Zimbabwe. International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is partnering with, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (Cirad) and University of Zimbabwe (UZ). The project aims to increase the adoption of climate relevant innovations in livestock-based production systems and improve surveillance and control of livestock diseases in Zimbabwe’s agro-ecological regions IV & V.
On-farm Feed Advisor
The On-farm Feed Advisor helps extension staff to advise farmers on how to balance their animals’ diet by matching nutrients and production in the feed offered, based on the animal body weight, milk production and stage of pregnancy. The application selects the cheapest locally available feeds to bridge the nutritional gap. The results are given in the form of an advice memo with information including cost of feeding and additional income before and after balancing the diet.

ILRI Herd Manager
This app was created to support a herd health research project within which it was important to have a tools that could easily capture details of animal health, productivity and movements. The project has the title HEARD (also the name of the app) and is led in Ethiopia by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The app was commissioned by ILRI as part of this project but a condition of their support was that the app should be made available on an open source (GNU GLP license) basis. This fits well with the ethos for the broader D3F project within which the app is situated as a key objective of that project is to provide open source tools to improve animal disease diagnosis and reporting in resource limited areas.

CGIAR AMR Hub
The CGIAR Antimicrobial Resistance Hub, led by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), applies a One Health approach to support the efforts of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in controlling agriculture-associated AMR risks, through promoting and facilitating transdisciplinary partnerships. The recently adopted CGIAR AMR strategy recognizes the need for evidence on links between agriculture (crops, livestock and aquaculture) and public health outcomes. Based on evidence generated, the hub develops solutions that are locally relevant and applicable, while being adaptable to other contexts.
