Our Communities of Practice

The Platform’s technical Communities of Practice (CoP’s), which are part of the Platform’s Module 2: Convene, work towards defining data standards and interoperability protocols, dovetailed with the Open Access and Open Data initiatives of the System Management Office. In addition, they foster collaboration spaces and opportunities, facilitate connectivity and sharing of methodologies, and support the organization of capacity-building workshops. 

Our communities

Data-driven Agronomy

A community aimed at collectively strengthening the innovation of technology and big data to tackle an array of agricultural challenges – including the closing of yield gaps – to reduce hunger and poverty and transform global agriculture.

Crop Modeling

A community that encompasses a wide range of quantitative applications, based around the broad concept of parametrizing interactions within and among the main drivers of cropping system.

Geospatial Data

A community that facilitates CGIAR’s research using geospatial data and analysis, undertaking activities to bring spatial scientists together through a series of coordinated communications and activities.

Ontologies Data

A community that focuses on the use and application of semantics for data harmonization at the levels of collection and storage, and for data interoperability and data discovery following the FAIR principles.

Info and Data Management

A community that works towards enhancing capacity and culture change around data management at Centers, and helps the CGIAR community stay current in a rapidly changing data and publications landscape.

Livestock Data

A community that brings together livestock and data modellers with project implementers and decision makers from industry, the public sector and NGOs o drive informed livestock decision-making through the better use of existing data and analyses.

Socio-economic Data

A community that works on strategies to make the data interoperable, in order to enhance the impact and the use of CGIAR-related socio-economic data for partners in development.
