The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) works to improve food security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for better and more sustainable use of livestock. ILRI is a member of the CGIAR Consortium which works for a food-secure future.

Data are one of ILRI’s most important resources for research and decision making. The data generated by the institute are deemed to be information global public goods (GPGs) and should be accessible and usable not only to ILRI’s partners but to the public.

ILRI's Datasets Portal aims at supporting the institute strategic objectives by storing, organizing and making available datasets generated in the course of research related activities for better evidence based decisions.
