CGIAR has developed a Platform for Big Data in Agriculture that advocates for open data use for agricultural research. Open data will, according to CGIAR, ultimately confer significant benefits to society, including accelerated scientific advancement, economic growth, resource efficiency, strengthened public support for research funding, and increased public trust in research. But open data requires responsible data management, which led CGIAR to create Ten Responsible Data Guidelines for Managing Privacy and Personally Identifiable Information in the Research Project Data Lifecycle.
