France will host the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris from
November 30 to December 11 to reach an agreement that will put the world on
track to limit global warming to 1.5° or 2° C. Our capacity to feed 9.5
billion people in 2050 in a context of climate change will depend on our
ability to keep our soils alive. France is proposing to take concrete actions
to improve the health of soils by sequestering organic matter [1]. More

The Ministry of Economic Affairs, CABI, GODAN, CTA and Wageningen UR are

Agriculture and Nutrition [1]. The workshop will be hosted at the Ministry of

The objectives of this workshop are:

sustainable production of food at lower environmental and social costs from
both a public and private sector perspective;

● To identify and scope Big Wins of Open Data towards impact and build
collaborative partnerships for implementation;

● To develop organizational and practical capacities for working with open
data in a meaningful way.

The workshop will bring together a mix of key players from public as well as
private sector organisations at national, international and global level:
governments, businesses, consultants, universities, research organisations
and NGOs. The participants are invited to share their views, practices,
success stories/failures and business cases in participatory workshops and
interactions. All participants will be invited to commit to personal action
plans and concrete steps to actively turn the power of open data into real
impact.
