Improving Global Agricultural Data (IGAD) Community of Practice Second IGAD Annual Virtual Meeting 2022
After the success of the first Research Data Alliance (RDA) IGAD annual meeting in 2020 the IGAD co-chairs are thrilled to host the second annual meeting between March 21 and April 8, 2022. The meeting will be held virtually to allow members and interested attendees from all over the world to participate.
Instead of an annual meeting, last year we hosted IGAD Coffee Breaks and worked to transition the Interest Group on Agricultural Data, to be the new Improving Global Agricultural Data Community of Practice. The CoP will provide better alignment with global practice, better ability to impact stakeholders via improved data systems and practices, and mutual learning from exchanging experiences. It will also increase opportunities to form partnerships on specific projects.
The 2022 virtual meeting will provide an online platform to continue to build collaborations, share knowledge, and develop innovations with activities including panel sessions, group discussions and contributed presentations distributed throughout two weeks between March 21 and April 8 2022.
