Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems

Call for Grant Applications

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems (LSIL) is based at the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida, and it works in partnership with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The LSIL is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through a five-year Leader with Associates Cooperative Agreement Award No. AID-OAA-L-15-00003.

The overall aim of the LSIL is to enhance the production, marketing and consumption of ASF in the target countries in order to increase the incomes, livelihoods, nutrition, and health of households, especially those of vulnerable women and children. This will be achieved by introducing new location-appropriate technologies, by improving management practices, skills, knowledge, capacity and access to and quality of inputs across livestock value chains, and by supporting the development of a policy environment that fosters sustainable intensification and increased profitability of smallholder livestock systems.

The target country for this Request for Applications (RFA) is Cambodia.

The LSIL will draw on the expertise of Cambodian, U.S. and foreign universities, institutes and organizations through competitively-funded multi-disciplinary, integrated and applied research and capacity-building projects. The competitive subaward projects will address country-specific research and capacity building priorities that were developed in a participatory manner with key local and national stakeholders in Cambodia.
