Community-based breeding programs in Ethiopia have helped improve indigenous sheep breeds

ICARDA has significantly expanded its research team in Africa, in addition to ongoing work in West, Central and South Asia. Plans for 2013 include:

·  Research on livestock value chains in Ethiopia, under the CRP ‘Milk, meat and fish’, including development of a toolkit for value chain assessment.

·  Expansion of community-based breeding programs in Ethiopia, that have significantly improved flock genetic quality and other traits of indigenous sheep breeds.

·  Training and dissemination to scale out a data recording and management system developed in collaboration with Embrapa-Brazil.
