In a new analysis, they untangle and predict how COVID-19 intersects with their work. They point out four areas of convergence, and suggest key actions now and in the future.
Four reasons why livestock data matter in the COVID-19 crisis:
- Data can show how COVID-19 impacts smallholder livestock keepers and inform responses.
- COVID-19 affects how animal and human health issues are perceived, funded and addressed.
- COVID-19 underlines the importance of good, open, data and evidence-based policy.
- COVID-19 calls for radical, cross-disciplinary collaboration.
