GODAN Summit 2016

In 2015, PUSH was invited by the Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) to be one of five organizations (including the governments of the United States, Great Britain, Kenya and the ONE Campaign) to plan the 2016 GODAN Summit. This historic event, which took place September 15-16 in New York City brought together more than 1,000 leaders in all fields to outline how making agriculture and nutrition data available and accessible can greatly accelerate the goal of a zero hunger world.Attendees met to discuss, brainstorm, and share their knowledge of open data with the hope of educating and collaborating with others who share these priorities. The event culminated in a High Level Forum in the ECOSOC Chamber of the United Nations.
