This module helps make the grant process smoother and the results more impactful by detailing what is needed for integrating Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and safeguarded data within an investment.
How to identify and then deliver FAIR and safeguarded data investments.
There is a cheat sheet and a checklist, plus the BonaRes case study and the CSISA case study.
Is the data FAIR and safeguarded, and can further actions can be taken?

- Why FAIR and safeguarded data within investments is important
- What makes data FAIR and safeguarded
- How to identify common constraints/challenges
- How to identify FAIR and safeguarded data investments.
Tools and Resources
Considering data in investments
All the key points from the eLearning module in one tidy document.
Making soil data FAIR and open
How developing a community-driven soil database can support farmers in decision making, using the example of the work by BonaRes.
Improving food security through harmonized soil data in South Asia
What the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) learned about making data FAIR as they developed a soil intelligence system.
Identifying investments that require FAIR and safeguarded data
This checklist helps identify investments likely to involve or require the collection, access, use, or sharing of data, for both the grantee and the program officer.
What does good look like?
The investment has identified a large number of datasets in their grant that will be generated, accessed, used and shared. These range from primary data, necessary to achieve the grants aim, to secondary data that is generated or collected as part of the project lifecycle (e.g. M&E data).
The investment has not considered whether activities in the grant will generate or use data.
The grantee has considered the above and is comfortable no data will be generated or used from their activities.
Assessing in-country potential for data sharing
Is the proposed collection, access, use and sharing of data in line with funder policies and supported by in-country data policies and regulations?
This module focuses on understanding the in-country requirements for integrating FAIR and safeguarded data within an investment to help deliver even greater impact.
