Introduction of the project

Here at the Animal Research Institute (ARI), there are quite a few projects going on. Ours' focuses on two major livelihood challenges facing fast growing, urbanising Africa: enhancing food security and sanitary waste disposal. With a key research question in mind, we're trying to evaluate whether an approach to agricultural waste transformation through Black Soldier Fly (BSF) and bio-fertiliser production can promote pro-poor and particularly female employment opportunities. In this area, there's already been some research directed at the use of insect-derived feed materials in fish feeds, but we still have to develop commercial-scale insect production systems under local on-farm conditions.
