How to Use Open Data for More Impact of Agriculture and Nutrition Related Projects

Webinar

In this first online seminar, the SNRD Africa’s ICT4Ag community of practice will provide a platform to discuss how your project can use open data to get more impact on the ground. The event will be geared towards the specific needs of projects operating in the area of agriculture and nutrition.

What’s open data all about?

In the last decade, the volume and types of freely available data have tremendously increased. There is an enormous stock of data that can benefit farmers in developing countries as well as be a great source for information to base decisions on at your work.

Relevant to you?

Whether you are a digital native or not, this webinar will add value for any project staff and leads involved in agriculture or nutrition related projects who’ve been on a lookout to make adequate use of openly available data in their work.

What’s in it for you?

The director of the Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition Network (GODAN), André Laperrière, will share his experiences with you, presenting best practices of the use of open data in the agricultural sector. You will gain insights into open data used in existing agricultural projects and together with André discuss the potential of open data for your everyday work in this sector.

  • When: Thursday, 14 September 2017, 15.00-15.45h (UTC+2)
  • Where: Online, Skype 4 Business
  • Partly open invitation: The event is open to all SNRD Africa members and GIZ staff.
