This Technical Report proposes methods for the collection of data to compile improved measures of selected indicators, based on analyses of existing methods and field-testing of alternatives.
The test phase of the project Improving Methods for Estimating Livestock Production and Productivity is based on the literature review and gap analysis and was carried out in three countries (Botswana, Tanzania and Indonesia).
This Gap Analysis Report seeks methods for improving the quality of livestock data across a range of species and focuses on production-level livestock, specifically on the measurement of production and productivity at household level.
These Guidelines are intended to be a reference document providing technical and operational guidance on various aspects of the Enumeration of Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic (Transhumant) Livestock in various country conditions, with particular attention being paid to developing countries.
Timely and accurate data is critically important for the development of food security programs, agricultural development, poverty reduction policies, investment strategies and natural disaster responses.
