From 2005-2010, the CGIAR compiled evidence on outcomes and impacts from center research as part of the annual Performance Measurement System.
This brief provides background information on outcomes and impacts. I make a few observations about the patterns I see, about gaps, priorities towards the future, and
challenges we are likely to face in the new CGIAR.
Two caveats: First, the outcomes and impacts reported here do not cover all the outcomes and impacts that ILRI has had, however they do provide a sample of the nature
and distribution of outcomes and impacts. Second, I made no attempt to summarize or evaluate the importance of the outcomes, nor the size of the impacts.
On 9 and 10 November 2011, the ILRI Board of Trustees hosts a 2-day ‘liveSTOCK Exchange’ to discuss and reflect on livestock research for development. The event will synthesize sector and ILRI learning and help frame future livestock research for development directions.
