Dr Dil Peeling meeting with STVS's Dean, Dr Abdullahi Sheikh Mohamed

As a service to all stakeholders to the livestock sector throughout Somalia, IGAD LPI has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Sheik Technical Veterinary School to develop an information node, through which livestock related data and information can both be accessed, and uploaded into the IGAD LPI data portal.

In turn, the school will support evidence based policy making in IGAD LPI working groups in South/Central Somalia, Puntland and Somaliland, through Information Coordinators. The fibre-optic cable which is planned for Sheik and Berbera in the near future will further allow the school to access IGAD LPI’s wealth of spatial data.

IGAD LPI will provide a training at the school for the information coordinators in the near future, in order the familiarise them with the IGAD LPI information system. In preparation, IGAD LPI’s CTA, Dil Peeling, visited the school’s Reference Centre, where he reviewed the school’s impressive IT capacity with its manager, Dr Ibrahim Osman Suleiman and the school’s Dean, Dr. Abdullahi Sheikh Mohamed.
