Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) 2016 Summit
GODAN is planning a 2016 Summit for its partners to advance the agenda for open data in agriculture and nutrition
The Summit has one clear challenge in mind: a call to action to help the GODAN partnership pinpoint and fill the critical data gaps in agriculture and nutrition required to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2*
Following on from GODAN’s hugely successful partners’ meeting in January 2015 (more about that here), you can keep up to date with the 2016 Summit developments over the next few months by signing up here.
