GODAN Open Data Discussion Paper

The GODAN Discussion Paper provides an overview of the way that open data improve the life of those working with agriculture and nutrition, aiming to eliminate food security issues and improve food production. In this context, the Discussion Paper includes a series of 14 use cases showing how open data can be useful in different stages of agriculture, food production and consumption which can also be used as Best Practices by current and future initiatives. References to open agriculture and nutrition data sources are also included, along with links to tools, standards and platforms that can be used for the publication of data as open data.

The Discussion Paper was produced in collaboration with the Global Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) initiative and the Open Data Institute (ODI) and was presented during the 3rd International Open Data Conference 2015 (http://www.makingallvoicescount.org/event/3rd-international-open-data-conference-2015-enabling-the-data-revolution/), which took place between May 27-29, 2015, in Ottawa, Canada.
