The climate dataset developed by the CGIAR Research Platform on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) is CGIAR’s biggest Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable (FAIR) database.

The dataset also underscores CGIAR’s role in big data for development, through its Platform for Big Data in Agriculture. The dataset is currently included in its Global Agriculture Research Data Innovation and Acceleration Network (GARDIAN).
