20th March 2018

Venue : Leibniz-Gemeinschaft in Chausseestraße 111, 10115 Berlin

The aim of IGAD Capacity Development Working Group (WG) is to develop synergies between existing education and training activities and agricultural science needs . A particular focus will be on sharing knowledge about training initiatives and technologies, reducing digital divides so that researchers and practitioners in developing countries can also benefit. It will also empower the existing collaboration with GODAN and GODAN Action.  GODAN Action is a project to enable the effective use of open data in tackling the food security and nutrition challenges by building the capacity of potential stakeholders to both understand the potential of open data for agriculture and nutrition and to engage with it practically.
