GOAL Sciences


Welcome to the Global Observatory for Accurate Livestock Sciences. In a world stirred up by an abundance of information and bias, we aim to curate such evidence topic-by-topic on the livestock sciences that is most relevant, accurate and objective. Along with our partners, we strive to highlight actionable insights on livestock production and consumption and with it inspire all our users to work jointly towards a sustainable global food system.

PLANET Food System Explorer

PLANET – Projecting Livestock, Agriculture, Nature, Ecology and Technologies.

PLANET is an interactive tool you can use to examine how raw-materials and resources flow through the global food system from the production phase to becoming foods and other goods. PLANET will continuously be updated with additional data sources, scenarios and types of flows. The core of PLANET is the Food Balance Sheet database provided by FAO.
