Currently, nearly 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition and can be found in every corner of the globe. That’s one in every nine people, with the majority being women and children. The Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN)  supports the proactive sharing of open data to make information about agriculture and nutrition available, accessible and usable to deal with the urgent challenge of ensuring world food security. A core principle behind GODAN is that a solution to Zero Hunger lies within existing, but often unavailable, agriculture and nutrition data.
The Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs, CABI, GODAN, CTA and Wageningen UR partnered to organise the 3rd Workshop on Creating Impacts with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition . The workshop was hosted at the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Hague earlier this week. I am happy to share the ideas that i presented for the GODAN Capacity Development WG  at the Hague meeting.
I would like to welcome all interested to join the GODAN WG on Capacity Development and contribute to education and training on Open Data in food and agricultural sciences. This is open and free to all interested. Join at https://dgroups.org/fao/godan_cd
