IGAD/RDA Recommendations

Implementing Good Practices in Agriculture

The new edition of the IGAD Event at the RDA's 14th Plenary Meeting will be held on 22 October 2019 in Helsinki (Finland). Following the IGAD Meeting in Philadelphia on Agricultural Data Interoperability: Opportunities and Lessons Learnt from Sharing and Re-Using Data, we would like to focus on the next related topic IGAD/RDA Recommendations: Implementing Good Practices in Agriculture.

One of IGAD’s main roles is to serve as a platform that leads to the creation of domain-specific Working Groups. To date, successful Working Groups (WGs) have been formed under IGAD, these are: Wheat Data Interoperability, Rice Data Interoperability, AgriSemantics and Capacity Development for Agricultural Data WGs. The groups play a key role in delivering RDA recommendations and good practices with regard to Agricultural Data Interoperability.

For those interested in actively contributing with a short presentation (15 minutes), please send an e-mail to AIMS at fao.org<mailto:AIMS at fao.org> with the title and brief abstract of your contribution before 25 July 2019. We invite contributions from people and organizations that have implemented IGAD/RDA recommendations in agricultural data projects and initiatives.  Discussion can involve both policy and technical aspects. The conclusions will be shared at the RDA's 14th Plenary Meeting at the Agricultural Data Interest Group Session.

If you would like to attend IGAD, whether or not you would like to present, please confirm your availability at AIMS at fao.org<mailto:AIMS at fao.org>, so we can keep you informed about the agenda.

We would like to thank the University of Helsinki for their support in hosting the IGAD Pre-Meeting!

Looking forward to meeting you in Helsinki
