IDELE is the French Livestock Institute. It is a non-profit and non-governmental organization. Its R&D activities generate technical solutions to bovine, sheep, goat and equine breeders and to all stakeholders of these value chains, taking into account the diversity of national territories and livestock systems. Providing responses to society expectations and demands is among the major challenges to be addressed.

For several years now, IDELE carries out projects about adaptation to climate change, in collaboration with its partners in agricultural development and research, and with value chain organizations.
