This workshop, part of the Interoperability in Action series, discussed some use cases of interoperability between Farmer Registry and SP-MIS systems, and demonstrated the Integration with SP-MIS. The demonstration highlighted the value of interoperability for delivering social protection programs. The workshop encouraged open discussion and feedback on various aspects including use cases, data fields and technical interfaces (API). We also encouraged inputs regarding availability of different vendors of open-source solutions, which can be used for interoperability of SP-MIS, Farmer Registry, thus enabling consensus building on standards.
