2016 GODAN High-Level Forum
Nearly 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition – that’s one in every nine people, with the majority being women and children. GODAN, or Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition initiative, is convinced that the solution to Zero Hunger lies within existing, but often unavailable, inaccessible and unusable agriculture and nutrition data.
Today sees the launch of the two-day GODAN Summit 2016, the largest ever event dedicated to open data in agriculture and nutrition, convening over 750 attendees
including world leaders, researchers, farmers, students and others – public, private and non-profit - united around a collaboration on agriculture and nutrition data
Organized by the Global Partnerships Forum.
