Although poverty analysis was not part of the original design of the
Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS, 1995-2006), some
programmes within the RNRRS developed poverty measurement, mapping and
analysis methodologies. These helped to address data gaps and provide
insights for future work in this area.
The Brief draws upon project outputs from four of the ten programmes:
the Aquaculture and Fish Genetics Research Programme (AFGRP), the
Forestry Research Programme (FRP), the Animal Health Programme (AHP) and
the Livestock Production Programme (LPP). The AHP and the LPP worked on
a series of projects with the International Livestock Research Institute
(ILRI) and these are included here. These research clusters have been
selected as examples of successful or significant use of poverty

Research Programme: Betser, L.; Palmer, J.; Bird, N. Poverty mapping
