This project ‘improved food and nutritional security from better utilisation of dairy cattle breed-types types in Senegal’, is led by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), in partnership with the the Interstate School of Veterinary science and Medicine of Dakar, the University of Helsinki and Natural Resources Institute Finland. It is funded via the Finnish Government’s FoodAfrica Programme.

Its objectives are to:

  • Determine the most appropriate dairy breed/cross-breed types for peri-urban dairy produc­tion systems in Senegal, and disseminate this infor­mation;
  • Characterise the dairy germplasm production chain, and related policies, and use this infor­mation to develop a strategy for strengthened dairy germplasm production and delivery systems;
  • Enhance local human, institutional and organi­zational capacity on accessing and promoting different breeds/cross-breeds of livestock.

This project contributes to the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish
