Graphic representation of the amount of web-based information/content across continents/regions. Note: This covers all subjects not just agriculture.
CIARD aims to influence and provide support at both the level of the organization and of the individual. The initiative is a collective commitment to promote and sustain the openness of agricultural knowledge for all. Institutional/organizational behaviour can be changed by the development of relevant strategic and policy frameworks. In many cases individual behaviour will not be changed unless there are policy requirements which influence the individual. CIARD aims to provide guidance and support to, and through this to change the behaviour of, both individuals and institutions. Through institutional change will come also enhanced individual change and, in the case of the CIARD initiative, increased and pervasive openness of research outputs. There is already much ‘good practices’ in institutions/organizations around the world, but a great deal more needs to be catalysed.
