GODAN Action MOOC: Open Data Management in Agriculture, Nutrition and Land

GODAN Action MOOC: Open Data Management in Agriculture, Nutrition and Land

Aperçu de l'événement

This fourth MOOC in the GODAN Action online learning series focusses on open data management for land, agriculture and nutrition.

The GODAN Action team invites anyone handling data in their studies or work, in the areas of land, agriculture and nutrition, to apply for the course.

GODAN Action is a three year project to enable data users, producers and intermediaries to engage effectively with open data in the agriculture and nutrition sectors. This e-learning course is being developed as part of the capacity development activities of the project, which aims to contribute to increased farmers’ yields, improved nutrition for consumers and better evidence-based policy making. Achieving such impacts requires that individuals, organisations, and communities feel confident in engaging with open data.

    Achieving food security for all is at the heart of FAO's efforts – to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. FAO's three main goals are: the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all; and, the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
