aWhere CEO Dr. John Corbett and CTO Stewart Collis will join agricultural leaders in Washington D.C. April 29-30 for the G-8 International Conference on Open Data for Agriculture. The conference represents the continuing commitments of the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, which was created at the 2012 G-8 Summit to engage African countries and private sector investors in sustainable agricultural development. The goal of this year’s conference is to promote accessible, relevant open data for the purpose of increasing food security and agricultural production around the world.

“More open and timely information is greatly needed across the agricultural value chain” says CEO Dr. John Corbett. “The provision of open data for agricultural initiatives will help the world reach greater food security; we’re excited to be a part of this movement.”
