  1. 1. Presenting GODAN Open Data & Precision Farming Martin Parr
  2. 2. Hunger Poverty Innovation www.godan.info
  3. 3. Hunger • For the first time in human history, the knowledge to end hunger exists on Earth • 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition • We need to find solutions beyond MORE food. Nutritionally sensitive agriculture is essential for global public health and wellbeing • We are convinced that the solution to closing this unacceptable hunger gap lies within harnessing and opening agriculture and nutrition data
  4. 4. Poverty Beyond absolute hunger, agriculture can be a means for smallholder farmers to develop economically through trade BUT lack of information about: • Plant pests and diseases • Market data • Regulations and standards • Weather data
  5. 5. Innovation Lack of data or access to that data can stifle innovation Restricted information may be in geographic or thematic silos Keeps data in the hands of the powerful – reducing the world’s ability to innovate
  6. 6. What is Open Data Data anyone can access, use and share • Accessible (published on the web) • Available (increasingly machine-readable format) • Licensed to permit anyone to access, use and share it
  7. 7. What is GODAN • Over 260 partners • National governments, NGOS, international and private-sector organizations • Began in 2013 at Open Government Partnership Conference • Encourages collaboration and cooperation across existing agriculture, nutrition and open data activities Any organization that supports open access to agriculture and nutrition data can join
  8. 8. Our network
  9. 9. Building a global momentum
  10. 10. GODAN network brings together agricultural, nutritional and open data actors in order to ensure: Use of open data is stimulated and implemented Successes of GODAN partners are understood & replicated GODAN network can learn from the successes elsewhere GODAN partners benefit from innovative work practices
  11. 11. Bring together agriculture, nutrition and open data sectors to: • build high-level policy and public and private institutional support for open data • encourage collaboration, sharing and cooperation • manage a framework of national and international events and dialogues
  12. 12. • Develop a shared agenda to increase the supply, quality, and interoperability of data • address questions and provide research on impact • harmonize activities with others, share knowledge
  13. 13. The GODAN story 2012 G-8 Summit World leaders commit to “ .. share relevant agricultural data available from G-8 countries with African partners.” G-8 International Conference on Open Data for Agriculture April 2013 - Open Government Partnership meeting October 2013 – GODAN launched Secretariat launched late 2014 with 5 year timeline 2015-2019

  21. 21. GODAN Summit #GODANSummit2016 • September 2016, New York City • Will bring together world leaders, researchers, farmers, students, and others - public, private and non-profit, united around collaboration on agriculture and nutrition data openness • The event will showcase open data success stories from across the world • Registration will open soon
  22. 22. GODAN Summit Open Data Challenge • Two tracks – policy and app development • The ultimate purpose of the challenge is to develop a community of open data innovators with a social focus to promote the idea of using open data as a global social good. We need your help to “set the data free,” therefore accelerating the global race towards universal food and nutrition security. • Awardees will receive support and networking assistance from the GODAN network, which now number more than 240 multi-sector members, and are encouraged to create cross- discipline teams to engage with other innovators
  23. 23. GODAN Summit Open Data Challenge – Two Tracks • Track 1 - Define key policy obstacles to open data use and dissemination, and provide innovative solutions to address them • The final paper should consist of an up-to 7,000-word white paper that provide both policy analysis and solutions that can realistically be implemented • Three winners will be chosen: • First prize: $15,000, Second prize: $10,000, Third prize: $5,000
  24. 24. GODAN Summit Open Data Challenge – Two Tracks Track 2 - Design and development of an application that makes the best use of available open data in the fields of agriculture and/or nutrition Eligible Platforms: • Smartphone or tablet, Web, Desktop, Software running on other publicly available hardware • Selection criteria: Innovation, potential impact, open data, feasibility, clarity and accuracy of solution • Three winners will be chosen: • First prize: $25,000 and 100 hours of professional engineering/consulting, Second prize: $15,000 and 50 hours, Third prize: $5,000 and 25 hours
