Exhibit: CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture
The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture is where information becomes power: power to predict, prescribe, and produce more food, more sustainably. It democratizes decades of agricultural data empowering analysists, statisticians, programmers and more to mine information for trends and quirks, and develop rapid, accurate and compelling recommendations for farmers, researchers and policymakers.
About: CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food-secure future.

The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture focuses on providing support to CGIAR and its key partners, helping to improve our data and share it with the world. We work from the bottom up to set the tone for big data in agriculture, establishing and maintaining CGIAR as a leader in generating actionable data-driven insights for stakeholders.
