ILRI in CGIAR Research Programs

CGIAR research by ILRI

CGIAR research is carried out through a number of CGIAR Research Programs and platforms; more information is available on the CGIAR website.

ILRI is actively engaged in several of these programs and platforms. ILRI leads the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock (since January 2017). This evolved from the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish that ran from 2012 to 2016.

ILRI leads the Food Safety flagship and co-leads the Improving Human Health flagship of the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health.

ILRI is a full partner in the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security and a Tier 2 partner in the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets and the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems.

ILRI contributes to the CGIAR Genebank  Platform and the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture.

The ILRI strategy contains further details on its research and how it fits in the CGIAR research portfolio.

Agri-Food Systems CGIAR Research Programs

The first of these is the innovation in Agri-Food Systems which involves adopting an integrated, agricultural systems approach to advancing productivity, sustainability, nutrition and resilience outcomes at scale.

Global Integrating Programs

The second cluster consists of four cross-cutting Global Integrating Programs framed to work closely with the Agri-Food Systems Programs within relevant agro-ecological systems.

Research Support Platforms

Three research support Platforms will also underpin the research of the whole system.
