Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) is a community of practice bringing together actors from across the livestock sector, including academia, industry, government and not-for-profit organisations.

As an LD4D member, Global Burden of Animal Diseases (GBADs) can actively participate and share ideas in LD4D community events and meetings, and get involved in working groups. These aim to generate innovative solutions to common problems such as livestock ontologies and modelling.

All outputs will be published via, the community’s data and evidence hub.
The 2020 LD4D Community of Practice meeting was hosted by FAO in Rome from 4 to 6 February 2020
