GODAN plans a global summit in 2016 for all its partners to move forward the agenda for open data in agriculture and nutrition. This follows a very successful partners' meeting in January 2015. You can sign up to stay up-to-date with developments during the coming months.
This is a call to action to assist the GODAN partnership in identifying and filling critical data gaps in agriculture and nutrition required to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. For more information on the World Food Prize event see the details of the Secretary's Roundtable on Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition held on 15 October 2015.
GODAN partners are invited to get involved in planning for our 2016 Summit to plan how we will move forward the open data agenda through our rapidly growing partnership by registering contact details here. If you are not yet a GODAN partner but would like to be part of this exciting initiative and get involved with our 2016 Summit you can find out more by signing up to become a partner. A core group representing partners who pledged support to the Summit at the recent Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa has already been looking at possible locations (including options for multi-site locations) for an event in September or October 2016.
