Livestock Geo-Wiki: Maps for a safer and more equitable livestock sector

Global demand for meat, milk and eggs is driving livestock sector growth and transformation. Whilst this provides many economic opportunities and promises to provide affordable animal source foods to many of the world’s undernourished poor, it comes with environmental, social and public health risks if not managed carefully.

This poster, prepared for the ILRI@40 series of events, highlights recent efforts to bring together and disseminate spatial data relating to the global livestock sector in the Livestock Geo-Wiki , which is being developed by a group of international organizations and universities. The mainstay of the wiki is a set of recently produced global livestock maps showing how livestock production relates to global public goods: welfare, environment and pubic health.
