Navigating upstream and downstream research: reflections from the Livestock and Fish animal health flagship

In late 2016, the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish produced several synthesis products, including a series of briefs on its animal health work carried out between 2012 and 2016.

This brief examines the experiences of scientists conducting a range of field and laboratory-based research. It was facilitated through the value chain approach of the Livestock and Fish program which focused on a specific chain in each target country: Pigs in Uganda and Vietnam, small ruminants in Ethiopia, aquaculture in Bangladesh and Egypt, and dairy in Tanzania and India.

It draws on a synthesis workshop in late 2016 where a group of flagship scientists organized to reflect on three issues:

  • The benefits of a value chain approach;
  • Success in bridging upstream and downstream research;
  • Lessons learned from the flagship research
