A sourcebook for decision makers on how to improve livestock data
This sourcebook on livestock data, published by the World Bank, FAO and ILRI, summarises the activities and outputs of the Livestock in Africa: Improving Data for Better Policies project. It provides guidance to decision makers responsible for collecting and analysing livestock data from different perspectives on how to systematically address livestock data-related issues within the context of the national agricultural statistical system. In particular, it first develops the skeleton of a sound livestock statistical system – consistent with the demand of livestock information by stakeholders and the principles of the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (World Bank, 2011). It then presents a sample of methods and tools – and associated examples – designed to improve the quantity and quality of livestock data available to decision makers.
