African Chicken Genetic Gains is an Africa-wide collaboration led by the International Livestock Research Institute. Partners from Ethiopia, the Netherlands, Nigeria and Tanzania will test and make available high-producing, farmer-preferred genotypes that increase smallholder chicken productivity in Africa.

Innovation platforms are one of the key elements of the approach; they are multi-stakeholder mechanisms that help generate and mobilize farmer needs and engage with important actors like the private sector.
