The Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), in collaboration with the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), is hosting, starting the 20th of June, this International Expert Consultation. Scope: consider steps that need to be taken globally to build a framework for data and information sharing for agricultural research for development. The Coherence in Information in Agricultural Research for Development (CIARD) partners organized it, including on the e-agriculture platform the preceding electronic consultation
Some suggestions include developing linked open data, open data repositories, registries of services and data sets, common vocabularies, standards etc. To bring more rapid fruition to the important activity to improve agricultural research for development, additional activities may be needed at various levels (communities, countries, regions) among the various ARD stakeholders and actors such as advocacy, capacity development and collaboration.
As an integral part of the consultation, on 20 June 2011, an Infoshare Market Place will take place where participants and their organizations can share their activities in information sharing. See more at www.egfar.org.
