At last week’s Open Government Partnership summit in London, the British and American governments announced a new partnership called GODAN (Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition). We’re delighted to endorse the initiative alongside a host of other civil society groups from across the world.
The Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) initiative seeks to support global efforts to make agricultural and nutritionally relevant data available, accessible, and usable for unrestricted use worldwide. The initiative focuses on building high-level policy and public and private institutional support for open data. The initiative encourages collaboration and cooperation among existing agriculture and open data activities, without duplication, and brings together all stakeholders to solve long-standing global problems. You can find more information about the initiative and who is supporting it at the GODAN website.
