International Food Security at Illinois (IFSI) and The ACES Office of International Programs are honored to announce the Fall 2016 International Food Security at Illinois Distinguished Lecture presented by Dr. Jimmy Smith, Director General of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

Dr. Smith, a Canadian, assumed the position of director general of the International ILRI in October of 2011. Smith is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he completed a PhD in animal sciences.

Before joining ILRI, Smith worked for the World Bank, in Washington, DC, where he led the Bank’s Global Livestock Portfolio. Before joining the World Bank, he held senior positions at the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Still earlier in his career, Smith worked at ILRI and its predecessor, the International Livestock Centre for Africa (ILCA), where he served as the institute’s regional representative for West Africa and subsequently managed the ILRI-led System-wide Livestock Programme of the CGIAR, an association of 10 CGIAR centres working at the crop-livestock interface. Before his decade of work at ILCA/ILRI, Smith held senior positions in the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI).

Dr. Smith is widely published, with more than 100 publications, including papers in refereed journals, book chapters, policy papers and edited proceedings.
