Living livestock research: Towards policies for people and pigs in northeast India

For the past several years, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has worked on a project to better livelihoods through improvement of livestock production and marketing in northeast India that is funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

In this 8-minute video, ILRI’s Pier-Paolo Ficarelli, a knowledge management specialist based in India, reports from a research site in Umlathu, a village in the forested, hilly state of Meghalaya, in northeastern India. The film explores with villagers the multiple realities of livestock farming, focusing on pig farming and local perspectives and demands for its development.
