Aginfo directories and web rings: News from GFAR

The latest issue of the GFAR Newsletter includes updates on recent Global Forum activities on information and communication management.

With FAO, GFAR is working on a distributed approach based on metadata exchange to build different types of global Directories, or Registries describing organizations, projects, projects outputs (documents) and experts, as well as news and events.

As part of the CIARD Initiative, GFAR is also leading the establishment of a Global ARD Web Ring - a “voluntary coalition of web spaces that share information related to agricultural research and innovation for development.”
