This ‘Impetus Strategy Paper’ highlights areas that can immediately improve livestock development in Africa. The paper attempts to focus on trends and issues that are of relevance to GALVmed now and in the future. This paper brings together information, evidence and examples from a range of key informants, studies and literature to assist GALVmed and its partners to identify potential areas where they might extend their work to best support livestock productivity improvement primarily for resource poor farmers in low-income countries.
