Preview: The World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) develops international standards for animal welfare to support Members improve how they handle terrestrial and aquatic animals on farm, during transport, slaughter, killing for disease control purposes, as well as in research and for specific topics such as stray dog management. Monitoring animal welfare standards can bring valuable insights for both WOAH and WOAH Members.
Through its Annual Report, the Observatory presents a global overview of the level of uptake of these standards that relate to animal welfare.
The animal welfare dashboard presents the results of the analysis in an interactive way.
