The Global GODAN/CIARD Consultation on Open Agricultural Knowledge for Development will take place at FAO of the United Nations headquarters in Rome, Italy, between 22nd and 24th April. The final programme for the event and supplementary information including a list of participants is available here. Acknowledging that there are many more people interested in this subject than are able to be there in-person in Rome, the planning committee have opted to run this e-consultation in parallel to the formal meeting in order to solicit as much feedback and wider stakeholder input as possible.
This e-consultation will run for three weeks in total. It will commence on Monday 14th April and end on Friday 2nd May. It will be less actively monitored during the three days of the face to face meeting (22nd-24th April) but you will still be able to contribute your thoughts on the questions during this time. The twitter hashtag #ciardgodan will be our main channel of two-way communication during this three day period.
You will need to complete a simple registration form before leaving any comments. This is so that we can contact you with any follow-up questions or clarifications if necessary. Please use the REGISTER link on the Website to register for participating in the E-Consultation. The information you provide in the registration will be used only for the e-consultation and does not entail becoming a member of the CIARD community. Registration is requested so that posts are not anonymous and participants don’t need to identify themselves for each post. The E-Consultation will be moderated.
