ILRI works to improve food security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for better and more sustainable use of livestock. ILRI is a CGIAR research centre, a global research partnership of 15 centres working with many partners for a food-secure future.
ILRI works with national organizations in Kenya to contribute to the country’s long-term development blueprint, Vision 2030, which aims to reduce poverty and ensure food security, transforming Kenya into a middle-income country by 2030. The institute has established close links, memoranda of understanding and collaborative research agreements with Kenyan ministries, research institutes, universities and local government offices as well as with non-governmental organizations, private companies and local communities. The projects in Kenya below are led by ILRI and in most cases jointly implemented with partner organizations.
