GODAN Webinar – The Role of Codes of Conduct in Smart Farming and FAIR Data Sharing


With the increase of big data in smart farming, it is more essential than ever to focus on the ethical and legal aspects of data governance (access, control, consent) and practices. This will provide valuable insights into how data is being collected and used, and for what purposes, how to bridge the digital divide, and how to create transparency in order to build trust between stakeholders.

To ensure that the benefits of the digital revolution in agriculture reach everyone involved, especially farmers, there is a need to identify sustainable ways to support data sharing among various stakeholders. Codes of conduct, voluntary guidelines, and principles on how to transparently govern farm data constitute an important first step to put some of the basic issues such as data ownership, data rights, data privacy, data security into an ethical framework and engage all stakeholders involved especially farmers.

In this Webinar an “ideal” code of conduct should look like from a general perspective, attempting to balance, if possible, the interests of all actors involved, focusing specifically on the farmers’ perspective and needs were discussed.

This webinar is also an excellent complement to Challenge 9 of the Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon!
