Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
Proportion of local livestock breeds classified as being at risk of extinction
|Unit of measurement||
The indicator presents the percentage of livestock breeds classified as being at risk, not at risk or of unknown risk of extinctions at a certain moment in time, as well as the trends for those percentages.
Risk category updated to reflect the following values (count of breeding females) - <100 = Critical; 100 - 1000 = Endangered; >1000 = Not-at-risk.
This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification. This indicator has not been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
