GARDIAN, the Global Agricultural Research Data Innovation & Acceleration Network, is a one-stop shop for data and publications, but it also allows users to visualize and analyze data, propelling the CGIAR System farther in an increasingly digitized, data science-driven agriculture for development sector.
The GARDIAN ecosystem enables users to find data assets from across CGIAR and its partners, and also offers an array of tools and services to manage data responsibly towards open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) outcomes, to explore and visually query data, and to securely exchange data and collaborate on code development and data analysis via its analytical environment (CG Labs).
