Livestock and Poultry Information and Early Warning System Project 2015-2017
To date, the Livestock and Poultry Information and Early Warning System (LPI-EWS) has reached its tenth year as a research project. Its major outputs are considered as tools for sound policy decision conducive for a globally competitive agribusiness and market development planning for livestock and poultry (L & P) sectors. This was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Philippine Statistical Research and Training Institute (PSRTI), and the Department of Agriculture (DA) which support the maintenance of enhanced information system for livestock and poultry. The proponents worked for the enhancement of the livestock and poultry data system from data generation to dissemination. This was done through improvement of data collection methods, data generation, maintenance and enhancement of databases, conduct of statistical capacity building programs, and dissemination of its statistical outputs. The latest project, LPI-EWS 2015, aimed to enhance forecast methodology, update L&P databases and conduct reorientation activities by revisiting the implementation of LPIEWS activities in the regions for a more responsive early warning system.
