Related CODATA taskgroup

The IGAD might be interested to know that a Task Group on Agriculture Data, Knowledge for Learning and Innovation was endorsed by the CODATA General Assembly in Gaborone in October - http://www.codata.org/task-groups/agriculture-data
Perhaps you already have contacts, though I don't see any mention of RDA in the TG blurb.
Note that primary participation in the CODATA group is from Africa, which complements the stronger focus on Asia from the RDA group.
Regards
Simon Cox
(CODATA ExComm member).
