FFAR is exploring investments that would increase the use of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) standardized data in agricultural research. The specific focus is to develop capacity to make data FAIR with a focus on data and research relevant to farming and ranching practices that contribute to climate mitigation and adaptation. With sufficient volume of relevant standardized and interoperable data, agricultural sciences can accelerate research and improve the accuracy and utility of decision support tools available for agricultural producers. This advance would help meet the urgency of the climate challenge by supporting all stakeholders – researchers, producers, NGOs, governments, etc. – with access to actionable data.
This Request for Information (RFI) is intended to gather further insight from relevant research and data science communities as to the need for the identified strategies, the scope of effort(s) required and the technology solutions appropriate to the purpose. Interested parties who respond to this RFI may be contacted for a follow-up strategic discussion. These opportunities may cover some or all of the following topics:
