Currently, nearly 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition and can be found in every corner of the globe. That’s one in every nine people, with the majority being women and children.
A core principle behind Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) - launched in 2012 - is that a solution to Zero Hunger (Sustainable Development Goal 2) lies within existing, but often unavailable, agriculture and nutrition data.
GODAN supports the proactive sharing of open data to deal with the urgent challenge of ensuring world food security. In particular, GODAN provides a global space, where partners could collaborate, share ideas, experiences and work forward on how to make relevant data in agriculture and nutrition available, accessible, responsible, and reusable worldwide.
GODAN action is focused on enhancing data standards and promoting best practices improving interoperability of data in agri-food domain.
Below are GODAN Working Groups (WGs) engaged in development of products and promotion of activities related to data interoperability and data sharing:
