Nearly 800 million people struggle with hunger and malnutrition everyday. That's one in every nine people, with the majority being women and children. We are convinced that the solution to Zero Hunger lies within existing, but often unavailable, agriculture and nutrition data. Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) is an initiative that seeks to support global efforts to make agricultural and nutritionally relevant data available, accessible, and usable for unrestricted use worldwide.
The initiative focuses on building high-level policy as well as public and private institutional support for open data. Open Geospatial data and open geo tools are key in supporting and achieving the 2030 agenda for Global Food Security.
