The 14th Agricultural Data Interest Group (IGAD), that focused on IGAD/RDA Recommendations: Implementing Good Practices in Agriculture, took place in Helsinki on 22 October.
One of IGAD’s main roles is to serve as a platform that leads to the creation of domain-specific Working Groups. To date, successful Working Groups (WGs) have been formed under IGAD, these are: Wheat Data Interoperability, Rice Data Interoperability, AgriSemantics and Capacity Development for Agricultural Data WGs. The groups play a key role in delivering RDA recommendations and good practices with regard to Agricultural Data Interoperability.
