OPEN CLIMATE - GODAN Documentary Web Series - Episode 4
Rice farming yields have declined in recent years in Colombia and climate change is suspected as the cause. Farmers, producers and scientists are now coming together to open up agriculture data sets to improve the problem.
Episode 3: OPEN CLIMATE
This is the fourth episode of GODAN's documentary web series that meets individuals around the world who are on the front line of how technology and data are reshaping agriculture to combat food insecurity and improve global nutrition.
This episode features the work of Fedearroz, the rice producer's federation of Colombia. The federation has historically kept data sets measuring climate, yields and farming practices related to rice-growing in the country and are helping small and medium growth farmers like Blanca, who runs her farm outside the town of Ibagué, in the department of Tolima.
Today, nearly 800 million people suffer from hunger and malnutrition around the world. For the first time in human history, we have the knowledge and the tools to put an end to it. Open data makes that knowledge available to everyone.
Open data is data that anyone can access, use and share.
