“Putting farmers at the center of a sustainable and equitable digital transformation of agriculture” is the core objective of a collective action on Inclusive Digital Transformation of Agriculture. The Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), the Forum of the Americas for Agricultural Research and Technology Development (FORAGRO), the Confederation of Family Producers Organizations of the Expanded Mercosur (COPROFAM), Global Open Data for Agricultura and Nutrition (GODAN) and Ag Gateway are seeking to address data governance concerns and challenges facing farmers in the Carribean and Latin American (LAC) region.
GODAN is hosting a webinar on Wednesday 13 October at 17h00 CET as part of this action.
Legal experts Foteini Zampati and Caroline Muchiri will discuss ethical and legal digital agriculture challenges faced by farmers; identifying best practices and examples to illustrate and explore how farmers can actively participate in more equitable data sharing. They will be joined by two farming representatives from Kenya and Latin America, to consider key questions such as: Who owns data, and who is entitled to the value of the data.
