During this joint webinar by the UN Global Network of Data Officers and Statisticians, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN, and the UN Datathon 2023 we are happy to welcome Aida Khalil, Oluwakayode Anidi, and Max Shang from FAO who will talk about how to unlock food and agriculture microdata through the FAM Catalogue.
The Food and Agriculture Microdata (FAM) Catalogue was launched by the FAO in 2019 to promote increased access to food security, nutrition, and agriculture-related microdata. As of today, the FAM Catalogue hosts over 1,300 surveys and censuses, providing easy access to their relevant documentation, metadata and, in most cases, microdata. Primarily targeted to FAM current and potential users, the webinar will focus on the Catalogue's main features, its publication workflow and supporting technologies, and on the different microdata access modalities in place. During the webinar the presenters will also illustrate some of the datasets available on FAM that could be used in the context of the UN Datathon 2023.
