LD4D CoP Charter
The Livestock Data for Decisions Community of Practice (LD4D-CoP) was launched in January 2017 with members from the global livestock development community. LD4D will provide a forum for pooling and sharing of livestock data expertise. The Supporting Evidence-based Intervention (SEBI) project will act as a secretariat for LD4D in order to co-ordinate discussion between the different stakeholders in this space, including donors. The scope of LD4D will be relatively broad and directed by the stakeholders but the CoP will, in the first instance, concentrate on improving access to, and use of, livestock health and productivity data from low and middle income countries to support better decision making. This charter provides the basis by which LD4D operates and includes the background, scope, structure and governance.
