With increasing digitisation in agriculture for rural development, climate change mitigation, data governance is now more relevant than ever. As smallholders and farmworkers rest at the heart of this data collection, we need to take precautions to ensure that their privacy and ownership are respected. How can we make use of data-led interventions, while putting farmers’ interests first?

In this first episode of the Lunch Talks webinar series, we are asking data governance experts the most burning questions on fair data. Make the most of your lunch break, and learn all the basics on data governance principles and risks. 

Join us on December 14th, between 13:00 and 13:30! Click here to register.
