Conference on Open Agricultural Data Seeks to End Global Food Insecurity

International agricultural leaders gathered in Washington, D.C., last week to discuss plans to distribute and utilize agriculture data collected in different countries to address global food security and nutrition, a legislative priority of the Academy.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the USDA's new Food, Agriculture and Rural data community, which offers a catalog of more than 300 data sets as well as numerous apps, tools and statistical products to improve food security. Many presentations focused on the impact of shared data and how it will facilitate effective and efficient utilization of food and water resources in a global system.

Academy member Catherine Woteki, PhD, USDA's chief scientist and under secretary for research, education and economics, met with leaders from other countries to discuss global collaboration and commitment to open data. In a radio interview, Woteki provided her thoughts concerning the outcome of the conference.

The Academy continues to focus on food and nutrition security, including its recently updated position paper "Nutrition Security in Developing Nations: Sustainable Food, Water and Health".
