We envisage that the principal tool to find open data from agricultural institutions and networks will be the CIARD RING.

The following is an initial showcase of big interoperable open data services provided by partners with whom GFAR has closely collaborated:

  • Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators (ASTI) 
    provides trusted open-source data on agricultural research systems across the developing world. Led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

  • AGRIS
    The largest database of bibliographic references in agriculture-related areas. It is now also a mashup of additional data coming from open data sources like the World Bank, Bioversity International, CAAS and other services.
    Managed by FAO.

  • Land Portal
    The Land Portal allows for the collection, sourcing, and searching of otherwise fragmented and inaccessible data and information on land governance and land use from diverse sources, produced by governments, academia, international organizations, indigenous peoples and NGOs.
