Livestock Innovation Lab Archive: Research Themes

Climate variability is an important determinant of animal, human, and environmental health. Changes in precipitation and temperature can affect the quality and quantity of forage available to animals at times when it is needed most.In addition to facing challenges from a changing climate, populations in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa are also undergoing rapid social transformation, facing reductions in communal resources and the reorganization of social obligations, networks, and governance.

Our goal is to increase resilience and augment the income of livestock producers in regions where agricultural systems are changing, available resources are shrinking, and climate is having an impact. We support research that aids individuals and communities to make choices and take actions that lead to sustainable livelihoods in the face of climate change.

We focus on the following research priorities to achieve our goals:
