Livestock and Fisheries Thematic Area of Research 

The major challenge facing the livestock sub-sector is increasing supply of livestock and livestock products. This has been constrained by inadequate feeds, diseases, inappropriate breeds, poor access to and utilization of knowledge, information and technologies (KIT). The challenge, therefore, is to provide information and knowledge that will empower producers to be market-oriented. Trade in livestock and livestock products require compliance to international quality standards involving, among others, traceability. Furthermore, limited value addition and product development hinders access to new market opportunities. In addition, certain policies currently covering the sub-sector are not conducive for increased growth. Hence the need for appropriate policies which will facilitate desired growth in the sub-sector. 

The Livestock thematic area of research will be expected to contribute to the attainment of the overall institutional purpose through the attainment of its purpose of generating and promoting livestock knowledge, information and technologies that respond to clients’ demands and opportunities. This purpose will be delivered through the attainment of the following five results:  (i) Technologies and innovations for demand-driven livestock and fisheries products value chains generated and promoted; 

(ii) Markets and marketing strategies for livestock and fisheries products value chains developed and promoted;

(iii)Policy options for enhancing demand-driven livestock and fisheries products value chains facilitated and advocated;

(iv) Capacity for implementing integrated enhanced.

(v) Availability of knowledge, information and technologies on livestock product value chains research enhanced. 

In order to deliver on the expected results, the livestock and fisheries thematic areas of research will be structured into three broad-based and interrelated research programmes as outlined below. Each of the research programmes will be expected to contribute to the attainment of the five livestock thematic area of research results. 

(i) Development and promotion of integrated animal and fisheries production products value chains;

(ii) Development and promotion of integrated animal health service delivery systems;

(iii)Development and promotion of integrated forage resources product value chains.
