To enhance the performance of livestock systems through livestock research for development, five interacting areas (categorized under flagships) are addressed: the genetic potential of the animals kept, their health, their nutrition, their interaction with the environment, and the livelihoods opportunities they offer through better management, agri-business models and policies.

The objectives of each flagship are pursued through gender-focused research, integrated with capacity development and communication activities.
