LRDE (Research Unit on Development of Livestock Activities) is a part of INRA's department on agrarian systems and development (SAD). The unit was created in 1979 and is composed of 17 employees all located in Corsica as the main working area. The scientific project of the unit focuses on the specific roles of technical changes on emerging processes of organisation of local actors within the agrarian system. It is structured in three main orientations :

  • collective management of local animal genetic resources,
  • territorial qualification of typical products,
  • environmental stakes of pastoral livestock activities.
