-- Colorado State University has received a $15 million grant from the United States Agency for International Development to study the impact of climate change on global livestock systems, particularly those in developing countries.

The grant was awarded to CSU's Animal Population Health Institute and the school's Institute for Livestock and the Environment. Over the next five years, the university will develop partnerships for research projects in areas like sub-Saharan Africa and central Asia.

Research will be centered on finding ways to help developing countries manage livestock under changing climate conditions. Ultimately, researchers hope to help livestock producers adapt to climate change and improve their livelihood, according to the school.
