Online Course in Open Data Management in Agriculture and Nutrition
The Open Data Management in Agriculture and Nutrition online course, developed by GODAN Action as part of its capacity development remit, might be of some interest. The course is aimed at policy makers, researchers and communications specialists working in the areas of agriculture, nutrition, weather and climate, and land data. It consists of five units as follows including 18 lessons.
The course is the result of a collaboration between various GODAN partners, including GODAN Action, Wageningen Environmental Research, AgroKnow, AidData, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the Land Portal, the Open Data Institute (ODI) and the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA).
It was primarily delivered as an e-learning course but the tools and ressources are now openly available on the FAO Web site:
