The overarching goal of this CRP is to increase productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems in order to increase the availability and affordability of meat, milk and fish for poor consumers and, in doing so, to reduce poverty through greater participation by the poor along animal source food value chains. To help these value chains perform better, the program will identify address key constraints and opportunities, improve institutional arrangements and capacities, and support the establishment of enabling pro-poor policy and institutional environments. Four CGIAR Centers are involved, namely, International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) which is headquartered in Kenya as the Lead Center, CIAT, ICARDA, and WorldFish Center. The CRP has a 3-year budget of US$99.6 million. The program was approved by the Fund Council in July 2011.
