Alan Duncan works for ILRI. My research interests include feeding systems for livestock and institutional barriers to enhancement of feeding in smallholder systems. For the CPWF projects my main input will be on innovation systems aspects of Nile 2 with some additional inputs to Nile 5. For Nile 2 we will be exploring mechanisms for working with local stakeholders to get them working together more closely and on joint agendas around rainwater management.
