This publication provides sharper focus on reducing poverty where it is most absolute and most wide spread. This review outlines a new strategic goal, collaborative ways in which the institute is enhancing its responsiveness to the fast - changing global environment; and five new research themes, viz, Targeting opportunities, Enabling Innovations, Market opportunities, Biotechnology and people, and Livestock and the Environment. The review also identifies three broad pathways, viz security assets, improving productivity, and accessing markets. Other topics of discussion include research serving the millennium goals; better options for poor livestock keepers, climate change and maize yields, livestock farmer field schools, small scale milk trade in Kenya, unique genetic resources of Africa; and epidemic of sleeping sickness in Uganda.
