FAIR provides transformative data practices to benefit donors, farmers, communities and countries.

In a bite-size format, the FAIR Journal delivers key insights, emergent knowledge, advocacy, and learning around the FAIR Principles. Discover international case studies, tools and resources to help activate FAIR in agriculture development.

The FAIR Journal is a quarterly, magazine-format digital resource curated by CABI. It supports the Enabling Data Access Phase 3 project (EDA3), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) data can unlock future innovation and ensure information brings value to farmers, funders, communities and countries.

The FAIR Journal celebrates that potential with short-form news, insights, stories of impact and innovative research from the international FAIR community.

It also showcases tools and resources CABI is developing for EDA3, alongside best practice examples.

Enabling FAIR data sharing and responsible data use

CABI is addressing constraints in realizing the value of data in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s investments by increasing the capacity and capability of Program Officers, grantees and national systems to initiate and manage change processes towards FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) and responsible data management.

Data policy and practice

The vast majority of smallholder farmers have little access to agricultural information or advisory services. Donors, understanding that digital development and the application of data can help bring practical knowledge and solutions to farmers, are increasingly investing in technology-focused grants and projects.
