The purpose of this guide is to support those working on livestock-related programmes and projects, particularly in the design of these, so that they can more effectively respond to the different needs, priorities, constraints, and livelihood strategies present in rural communities or households.

This guide focuses on the collection and use of qualitative socio-economic and gender-disaggregated data, particularly for use in project identification and design. However, this does not negate the need for quantitative data collection and use, particularly in monitoring and evaluation. There are other useful guides and training materials that are helpful for working on this. This guide provides a brief overview of some of the key socio-economic and gender issues related to livestock production. In particular, it considers the impact of HIV/AIDS on livestock production and related activities, as it is an overarching development concern affecting all sectors, and increasingly all regions of the world.
