opens in Ethiopia

Chicken farmers in Ethiopia may
soon benefit from the work of a new
poultry genetics research center that
opened this year.
The facility, known as Incubated
Worlds, will help the country's poultry
farmers overcome local production
challenges, primarily through applying
genetic technologies to quickly improve
local chicken breeds.
The facility has been set up as part
of the continent-wide African Chicken
Genetic Gains project, established in
2014 to tap the genetic diversity found
in poultry and to provide more opportunities for rural producers, and led by the
International Livestock Development
Institute (ILRI)
The facility has been developed primarily as a response to food insecurity
in the region, but the various activities

that will be carried out there, the ILRI
hopes, will make the subject of livestock diversity engaging and stimulating.
"Of all livestock, poultry production
can be scaled up to meet household nutritional needs far more affordably and
sustainably than other types of farm
animals," says ILRI Director General
Jimmy Smith. "We want our poultry
work in Ethiopia to serve as a model
for how livestock can be a source of
economic growth and prosperity and a
way to improve household incomes and
nutrition."

Part of the work at Incubated Worlds
involves bringing in farmer associations to study more efficient breeding
practices and to learn about the latest
