This presentation was given at the SAAKS-SA Regional Workshop, Johannesburg, South Africa, 4-5 October 2006. It concerns the information sources available for the livestock sector of agriculture in Viet Nam and the roles that the information performs in informing pro-poor policy formulation. In concluding, the presentation calls for a network of data providers, to gather data from diverse sources, and for this network to be made widely available.
