Who we are

The CoP is open to anyone working on livestock development and gender, including animal health professionals and researchers, program directors, Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation experts, and anyone interested in making livestock development projects more gender equitable and impactful.  

Why join us?

Connect with other members to learn from shared experiences, both positive and negative. You can choose and discuss the topics you want to learn about. We host events, presentations and panel discussions on collecting, analysing and interpreting livestock and gender data.

The community is exploring a diverse range of topics related to the planning, monitoring and assessment of gendered outcomes in livestock-related projects, such as the selection of indicators for use along livestock value chains, and the practical challenges in improving the granularity of gender-disaggregated data.

CoP hosts

The Gender and Livestock Data community of Practice (CoP) is hosted by the Livestock Data for Decisions (LD4D) network, together with members of the International Livestock Research Institute’s (ILRI) gender team. The LD4D network, facilitated by SEBI-Livestock, brings together a wide range of parties to collaborate on new and innovative livestock data solutions.
