Unlocking benefits for agriculture with FAIR data

Learn how to ask the right questions and apply best practice for improved decisions with data — in seven standalone modules.

How to use this toolkit

The Data Sharing Toolkit contains seven eLearning modules with supporting case studies, checklists, cheat sheets and guides. All the modules help demystify how to use, collect and share Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and safeguarded data for you, and, for the people in agriculture you wish to empower.

Each question supports best practice for FAIR and safeguarded data in investments in agriculture around the world, in support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grantees and program officers.


The Data Sharing Toolkit is a beta website created as part of an investment funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and led by CABI: ‘Enabling data access to support innovation in decision agriculture related to soil health, agronomy and fertilizer’.
