Livestock Geo-Wiki

In a multi-partner collaboration centered on the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB-LUBIES), global maps of livestock distributions and production systems are being revised and updated.

The Geo-Wiki is used to provide a central viewer, validation tool and repository for these data. The module currently contains data on livestock distributions (cattle, chicken, duck, pig, sheep & goat) but the platform aims to develop a comprehensive global livestock information system, and will be complemented by modules on major global benefit and impact linked to the livestock sector in i) poverty and growth, ii) health and nutrition and iii) climate and natural resource management.

Register or log in and go to the Geo-Wiki application to view and download this dataset. If it is not activated by default, don't forget to choose the "Livestock" branch in the drop down field in the top left corner.
