Caroline Bosire joined ILRI in June 2009 as a temporary staff, working with the People Livestock and Environment theme (PLE). In June 2010, she joined the improving markets theme as a research technician. She has been involved with the marketing of livestock project in the Kitengela Open Plains Programme (KOPP for PLE) and the East Africa Diary Development (EADD for Markets).

Reflecting on her time in ILRI, she says: “I have developed a better understanding of livestock issues and acquired the ability to integrate my ecological background to it. I initially studied conservation biology at my undergraduate and MSc and ILRI has widened my scope”.

  1. That’s great for Carol and Congratulations to you and the entire PLE team. I am hopeful this wide scope of knowledge your getting in livestock will contribute to efforts of improving livelihoods of especially poor livestock farmers in Africa. I wish you the best Carol.
