How do we support livestock decision makers to use data and evidence?

- Get practical guidance for understanding who your decision makers are and what their data needs may be.
- Learn about technical data challenges as well as the behavioural challenges around data use for decision making.

How do we know a livestock project is empowering women? What data is needed to measure this impact? And what are the results?
Join us for a webinar sharing lessons from IDRC's Livestock Vaccine Innovations Fund (LVIF) projects. The LVIF supports the development of affordable livestock vaccines, targeting diseases that impact women and men livestock smallholders and facilitating their access and use at scale.
A set of four participatory action research projects within LVIF are addressing barriers faced by women in livestock vaccine systems across six countries and generating new evidence on how they can better benefit and participate in these systems.
Come and hear more about how these projects worked to empower women, what data and evidence they collected, and what they learned!
This webinar is hosted by the Livestock Data for Decisions community of practice on Gender and Livestock Data.
