The Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH) supports partnership programmes that aim to improve livestock-based livelihoods in the tropics. We forge partnerships and catalyse investments that enable scientists, investors, policy makers and user communities to co-produce and apply the knowledge and tools necessary to make our vision a reality.

Our mission is to deliver genetic gains for tropical livestock development. In 2015, we launched a research portfolio supported by our strategic partner institutions and funders to develop and apply genomic tools to improve the productivity of tropical livestock and increase climatic resilience, adaptation, and mitigation for the benefit of smallholder farmers in the tropics.
