Animal and forage biotechnology at ILCA



Animal and forage biotechnology at ILCA



Biotechnology and Development Monitor ( 11): 8



The mandate of the International Livestock Centre for Africa (ILCA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is to assist national efforts which aim to effect a change in the production and marketing systems in sub-Saharan Africa, in order to increase the yield and output of livestock products. Biotechnological techniques are applied in 2 areas: (1) for the improvement of livestock breeds and conservation of special animal populations and (2) for germplasm management of forage crops.
