Potential use of Blockchain for Livestock Statistics in Vietnam

This technical report is the result of a study conducted in close collaboration with the General Statistical Office of Vietnam (GSO), the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam (MARD), TE-FOOD and the Australian Commonwealth Research Centre (CSIRO-Data 61). The objectives were to contribute to a better understanding of the applications of blockchain technology and its implications for the official statisticians in the livestock sector, to analyse the feasibility and the sustainability of using information available on the blockchain from an official statistical perspective, on the basis of the systems put in place by TE-FOOD in the pig sector in Vietnam and to make recommendations, discuss possible improvements and propose a further research agenda.
