The Interest Group on Agricultural Data is in the process of transitioning to be one of RDA’s first Communities of Practice. In this plenary session we will provide orientation to the new CoP framework, update participants on IGAD activities, and discuss a roadmap for future IGAD membership and relationship with other CoPs and IGs both within and outside the Research Data Alliance.

People whose work relates to agricultural data but who are new to IGAD, existing members of IGAD.
IGAD is a domain-oriented group working on all issues related to global agriculture data. It represents stakeholders in managing data for agricultural research and innovation, including producing, aggregating and consuming data. Beyond this IGAD promotes good practices in research with regard to data sharing policies, data management plans and data interoperability, and it is a forum for sharing experience and providing visibility to research and work in agricultural data. Has held webinars and physical and virtual sessions extending work happening during RDA plenary meetings.
Formed in 2013, IGAD has incubated a number of working groups and is now applying to be a Community of Practice.
