Livestockdata.org offers data and evidence on livestock health and
productivity in low and middle-income countries
A new website aims to communicate the best available data and evidence on livestock health and productivity. Launched today, Livestockdata.org is managed by Supporting Evidence Based Interventions (SEBI) on behalf of the Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) community of practice. According to SEBI, poor quality, scarce and disparate data are holding back development of the livestock sector in low and middle-income countries. This impacts the lives of millions of people who depend on livestock for a living. The new site aims to build up a knowledge base of open access data, interactive tools and visualisations that policy makers and investors can use to make evidence-based decisions.
