The three-year project aims to enable data users, producers and intermediaries to engage effectively with open data in the agriculture and nutrition sectors. In particular, GODAN Action works to strengthen capacity, to promote common standards and best practice and to improve how impact is measured.
The overarching aim of the e-learning course is to strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers, and to help them manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. The course has been delivered three times since it was developed by the GODAN Action team.
Open to applicants from around the world, the course is designed for those with an interest in working with open data, focusing on the particular areas of agriculture, nutrition, weather, and land data.
The course would be particularly useful for infomediaries, ICT workers, technologist-journalists, communication officers, librarians and extensionists, policy makers, administrators, project managers, researchers and scientists. However, the GODAN Action team welcome applications from anyone who is interested in learning more about working with open data.
The application deadline is Wednesday 27th June, and you can find more information and how to register here.
