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.
