Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 13 October 2014
Wherever you are in the world, beekeeping is a guaranteed source of income. The international market varies but in developing countries honey production remains a vital means of subsistence. It supports the environment too, but plummeting bee numbers now jeopardise food chains in developing and developed countries alike, and experts are scrambling to coordinate a response.  
Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 10 December 2013
There is much discussion in the development arena about the struggle ahead to feed the seven plus billion, of the methods proposed towards food security, building resilience, safeguarding water resources and so on. But few stop to ponder the basic ingredient in all of this: the very land under our feet, and the starting point of all agricultural productivity. At the European Development Days, EuropeAid hosted a Lab session dedicated to the relevance of soils in development policy, featuring the release earlier this year of the first Soil Atlas of Africa.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs, CABI, GODAN, CTA and Wageningen UR are
partnering to organise the 3rd Workshop on Creating Impacts with Open Data in
Agriculture and Nutrition [1]. The workshop will be hosted at the Ministry of
Economic Affairs in The Hague.

The objectives of this workshop are:

● To build action agendas to strengthen the role of open data in achieving
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.

Challenges faced by agriculture and rural areas and the long-term character
of research activities call for a strategic approach to research and
innovation. European Commission is organising a conference [1] to discuss how
such a strategic approach could be implemented. The conference closed a
half-year process kicked-off in Milan in June 2015. The objectives of the
conference were to: present the main elements of a long-term strategy for EU
agricultural research and innovation; discuss its content, in particular
several dimensions of the manner it could be implemented. The conference
will assemble over 500 participants including scientists, relevant science
networks, stakeholders, International organisations and authorities.
