Vital data on the status of animal health and productivity in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) is disparate and scarce. Productive livestock can lift smallholders out of poverty, so relevant data is required in order to select the livestock strategy that will be most effective in maximising productivity.

The Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) Community of practice brings together ‘data suppliers’ and ‘data users’ to ensure data supply and demand are met.

Through cataloguing and organising livestock data, making it more discoverable and digestible, LD4D ultimately aims to guide investments that will improve the livelihoods of smallholder livestock keepers.

Together, members share and collaborate on expert knowledge and innovations that can improve livestock health and productivity. Learn more about our Working Groups.
