The GODAN Secretariat is pleased to welcome two important additions to its Steering Committee.
The Government of Mexico will now be represented in the Steering Committee by Mr. Enrique Zapata, General Director of Open Data, Coordination of National Digital Strategy, Office of the President.
In his duties Mr. Zapata will be assisted/deputized by Mr. Andrea Barenque, Deputy General Director of Open Data, Coordination of National Digital Strategy, Office of the President.
Additionally, the Deputy Director General for International Cooperation, Dr. Nie Fenying, from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) will be represented on the Steering Committee, to compliment a new partnership with GODAN focused on open data in China and the Asia region.
In his duties Dr. Fenying will be assisted/deputized by Dr. Zhang Xuefu.
At the GODAN Donor Meeting in January 2016 it was agreed that during the inception phase, the GODAN Secretariat would be governed by a group of GODAN partners who have committed to provide funds or in-kind contributions to support the set up and ongoing running of the Secretariat.
In addition to these two new additions, those partners are: the US Government, the UK's DFID, the Netherlands Government, the Open Data Institute, FAO, CTA, CABI, CGIAR and GFAR.
