Recently, ILRI director general Jimmy Smith signed a Strategic Partnership Agreement between the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish.
According to program director Tom Randolph, this is a key milestone in the evolution of the program, adding strong academic expertise to the existing livestock and fish research for development partnership.
The agreement was earlier signed by SLU’s Vice-Chancellor Lisa Sennerby Forsse.
