What is LCIRAH?

LCIRAH was established under a five-year £3.5m grant from The Leverhulme Trust to build a new intersectoral and interdisciplinary platform for integrating research in agriculture and health, with a focus on international development goals.

The Centre brings together researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Royal Veterinary College (RVC), City, University of London and their partners, to develop research approaches and methodologies that integrate agricultural and health research.

The research programme involves anthropologists, economists, agricultural researchers, public health professionals, and nutritionists working together on LCIRAH's overarching research question:

How do we achieve sustainable food and agriculture systems which promote health and well-being for all people?
