Forestry and agriculture information resources latest

Good news from FAO for all interested in forests and their products:

After much reflection, we have decided to merge the NWFP Digest and Non-Wood News into a single e-publication, which will be distributed quarterly: the present NWFP Update. Whilst possessing many of the same features of its predecessors, we are placing increased emphasis on views and contributions from our readers, with the hope of building a dynamic platform for practitioners to exchange views on NWFPs in the long-run… Finally, we would like to thank Tina Etherington, long-time editor of the NWFP Digest and Non-Wood News who retired last year. Tina provided such momentum to the NWFP “conversation” in previous years through her work and was an inspiration to many.

Happy to add our thanks and congratulations for Tina. You can subscribe from the appropriate FAO Forestry web page.

And since we’re on the subject of data and information, have you heard about agINFRA? It’s all part of this Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) thing. :

agINFRA is pioneering the connection of Agricultural Data through an Open and Participatory Data Infrastructure. Our website is here to provide you with everything you need to know to discover exciting new developments in the field and get yourself or your organization involved.

So now you have no excuse.
