The meeting will bring GODAN partners together for meetings and discussions that foment independent or Secretariat-facilitated partnerships going forward, and provide engagement with high-level GODAN goals. All are welcome to this annual meeting about public and private sector  use of open data for agriculture and nutrition. This is a chance to get to know the GODAN initiative and learn more about what the GODAN partners are working on. To let all GODAN partners know who you are and what your interests are we created a form that is used to create a partner profile booklet.
