The culture around sharing our data and software is evolving. Funders are starting to provide more clarity and requirements. Institutions are working to provide support and incentives. And journals are requiring that data be cited with some improvement on software as well. And yet, it is still difficult. Not all data can be shared. Not all data can be cited.

As us celebrate our progress we must also strengthen our collaboration and efforts in addressing the current challenges and those to come. Achieving FAIR, open and reproducible research through data and software management and preservation is both difficult and rewarding. Governance and sovereignty as represented by the CARE Principles give us a framework to expand research stakeholders to the people and community. In this talk we will share approaches that the AGU is taking to share data and software with stakeholders of the research ecosystem for better science, decision-making, and transparency. Persistence is necessary. Flexibility is key.
