The Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (Kalro) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) have signed a new partnership to deepen collaboration in agricultural research.
ILRI and Kalro have previously worked together in the smallholder dairy development and East Coast fever vaccines development, among other projects.
“This agreement marks the renewal of a historical relationship between our organisations and will forge a new partnership that will make our joint activities more effective and efficient,” said Jimmy Smith, the director general of ILRI.
Eliud Kireger, the director-general of Kalro, said the agreement was a “milestone in regularising a relationship that has existed between the two organisation for many years”.
He added the two organisations would share experiences to create programmes that will better benefit the livestock sub-sector.
