Livestock data community deliberates strategies for impact

Report back from Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) meeting, 4-6 February 2020.

LD4D 2020 meeting participants
The 2020 Livestock Data for Decisions Community meeting was hosted by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in Rome.

As a global community of practice, Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) operates mostly virtually, but the community really comes to life at our annual face to face meeting. This year’s meeting took place in Rome mere weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic was declared.  The focus question was how to improve the use of livestock data for a healthier, more resilient and more sustainable livestock sector. The meeting was a unique opportunity to share best practices, reflect on challenges, hear feedback, and propose solutions that can be carried forward by LD4D working groups. Supporting Evidence Based Interventions (SEBI) act as secretariat to LD4D.

We were fortunate to be able to meet in person, and look forward to carrying out next steps through virtual collaboration.
