Participate in Upcoming E-Agriculture Forums

Participate in Upcoming E-Agriculture Forums

June 14, 2017

This exciting event is hosted by our partners at GODAN:

The e-Agriculture platform is hosting a forum on ICTs and Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition between June 19th-July 14th.  This discussion will explore how information communication technologies (ICTs) can be used to facilitate the fair use of open data in agriculture and nutrition by farmers in general and especially by the more vulnerable among them such as family farmers, rural women and the youth engaged in farming as a livelihood.  

As a lively extension of this discussion, e-Agriculture will be hosting an additional forum on the Agriculture Open Data Package from July 10th-21st.  Participants are invited to share their experiences, needs and views on government open data supporting their agricultural sector. Which data sets do you consider important, what, challenges need to be overcome and what lessons to be learned.  Results and feedback from the AgPack discussions will be synthesized and used to bring the AgPack from its beta to alpha version. The discussion will also be shared at the African Open Data Conference in Accra. The AgPAck is part of the part of the ODC open up guides.

Join us!  Both forums are open to individuals interested in the topics, if you wish to participate you must first create an account here.  Once registered, you can find the desired discussion here.
