EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Tadelle Dessie has BSc in animal Sciences (1990, Alemaya University, Ethiopia), MSc in Sustainable Tropical Animal Production Systems (1996, Swedish University of Agriculture) and a PhD in Animal Genetics and Breeding (Dr. Sc. Agr., Doctor of Agricultural Sciences) (2003, Humboldt University of Berlin in Germany). In addition, he has received short-term courses such as project design and proposal development, project management, GIS and ArcView, outcome mapping, group facilitation skills, International postgraduate course in Principles of QTL mapping, Poultry management: project planning, monitoring and evaluation, and data analyses.

 

Tadelle has 29 years of research and development experience in various national and international research and development organizations.  1) Currently he is a Senior Scientist and PI/Project leader of the African Chicken Genetic Gains (ACGG) project implemented in Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia (2015-2020) and ACGG-ATONU agriculture to Nutrition project in Ethiopia and Tanzania; and group leader for Livestock genetics program in ILRI Ethiopia and officially representing the program in ILRI Ethiopia; 2) Tadelle currently leads the conceptual development of research projects and planning and implementation of complex and scalable research agenda that are well-aligned to the mandate of ILRI; 3) Tadelle also leads the livestock genetics program stuff in Ethiopia and project stuff based in Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia, attached with the national system, in an effective way through coaching, mentoring, empowering and was effective in building a team which is vibrant and effective and; 4) Furthermore, he effectively manages resources (financial and physical) that are under the group and lead and co-lead resource mobilization for projects.

 

During the last 15 years’ service to ILRI, Tadelle is involved in the areas of leading knowledge management project (DAGRIS), capacity building and implemented projects which are of research for development nature including his involvement in developing the small ruminant value chain in Ethiopia which is a CGIAR Consortium Research Program (CRP) on Livestock and Fish, member of the project implementation team member of the GEF Asia project, PI/ project leader of the ILRI BecA Goat project,  Reducing the impact of infectious disease on village poultry production in Ethiopia, ACGG and ACGG-ATONU projects. The projects are of international standard on characterization, conservation and improved utilization of animal genetic resources and knowledge management to contribute for enhanced livelihoods of poor livestock keepers and provide support to research and capacity building activities for ILRI’s partners in Africa and Asia. Tadelle has rich experience and understanding of livestock production systems in Africa and Asia, livestock science and interactions between people, livestock, and production environment and objectives and aspirations of the poor livestock keepers (list of projects Tadelle was/is involved are listed in the body of his CV).

 

Tadelle is known by his soft skills and social competence. For example, he is known by his outstanding ability of partnership management at national and international level. He is able to strategically identify partners and collaboration needs; actively explore partnership opportunities; effectively lead implementation of collaborative activities; successfully motivate participation and commitment within the partnerships; monitor and cultivate healthy and effective performance of partnerships and received a number of awards in recognition of his social competence and scientific achievements (see in the body of his CV).

 

Tadelle has authored or co-authored more than 225 publications in peer-reviewed Journals, edited proceedings, books, book chapters etc. He is a member of several professional associations and networks; and served as President and Vice-President for Ethiopian Society of Animal Production (ESAP) and All African Society for Animal Production (AASAP), respectively, and also regular reviewer for many scientific journals and Editor-in--chief of Ethiopian Journal of Animal production (EJAP). Tadelle is married and a father of three (a daughter and two sons).
