We are a global network dedicated to improving livestock data to support better decision-making
The LD4D Network
The Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) network unites over 800 people worldwide working with livestock data. Our members include academics, policy makers, project implementers, farmer representatives, funders, businesses, and livestock advocates.
LD4D is facilitated and supported by the Centre for Supporting Evidence Based Interventions in Livestock (SEBI-Livestock), awarded to The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at The University of Edinburgh.
SEBI-Livestock mobilises and applies data and evidence to help the livestock community make better investments that improve livelihoods for smallholders in low and middle-income countries.
