Working Groups
LD4D has set up a series of short-life groups to discuss and facilitate solutions to pressing livestock data challenges.

Gender and Livestock Data

The Gender and Livestock Data Community of Practice aims to improve understanding about collecting, analyzing and interpreting livestock and gender data, and is open to anyone interested in making livestock development projects more gender equitable and impactful.  

Data Visualisation and dashboards

This group is investigating ways for forecasting livestock disease through the use of data visualisations, as well as how to collect and share real-time data using dashboards.

Livestock Modelling (closed)

This group brought together modellers who work within the livestock sector under the LD4D banner. It aimed to facilitate collaboration to answer some of the big questions relating to livestock.

Livestock Ontologies

This group brings together research organisations and individuals to answer the question “How do we present livestock data in a consistent manner?”

Livestock Fact Check

The Livestock Fact Check project digs into the evidence behind popular facts about livestock, to discover whether those facts are accurate and up to date.
