To increase public awareness and the use of Open Agriculture and Nutrition Datasets in agricultural research and development, IFPRI's G-CAN Project Team is working to make household-level data more approachable and interoperable. The team will organize the first Feed the Future DATATHON event in Washington, DC to showcase findings from the harmonized data in Bangladesh and also invite avid data geeks to generate their own analyses, visualizations, and new insights around the suggested research topics of:
- Historical trends of climate shocks and their impacts on the livelihoods of female farmers and their empowerment in agriculture
- Spatial representation and historical dynamics of gender inequality in agriculture
- Relationships between women’s empowerment in agriculture and nutritional outcomes
A similar event will be organized in Dhaka (Bangladesh) at our IFPRI office, following the same format of the DC conference.
