To help reaching the Sustainable Development Goals, CGIAR must tap into Big Data.  Within the programme on Climate Change for Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), researchers have already applied Big Data analytics to agricultural and weather records in Colombia, revealing how climate variation impacts rice yields.  After defining its Open Data-Open Access strategy, CGIAR has launched an internal call for proposals for big data analytics platforms that will provide services to the Agri-Food system programmes and parners, and will interconnect the CGIAR data to other  multi-disciplinary big data. The seminar will present the pespectives of the envisioned platforms.
