Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH)


The Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) is an inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary platform for integrating research in agriculture and health, with a focus on international development goals. LCIRAH brings together researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and their partners. Together these institutes develop research approaches and methodologies that integrate agricultural and health research. LCIRAH is part of the London International Development Centre within the University of London.

LCIRAH contribution to LANSA

LCIRAH brings a team of agricultural development economists and nutritionists who are well-versed in interdisciplinary research along the agri-food nutrition-health continuum. LCIRAH co-leads two research themes; agri-food value chains (strategies and policies)  and pro-nutrition agricultural interventions. The LCIRAH team also makes a significant contribution to LANSA's capacity building activities.
