Forum: "ICT and agriculture in the context of 'green growth'" March, 2012

 

This forum has been part of a collaboration between the World Bank, FAO and the e-Agriculture Community, carrying out a series of online forums to further develop resources for the ICT in Agriculture Sourcebook - 5 to 16 March 2012
 
This forum explored how information and communication technologies (ICT) can support "green growth" and climate-smart agriculture. Climate-smart agriculture seeks to increase productivity while reducing contributions to climate change. Success is essential in order to provide enough food for the world’s population and to mitigate environmental damage. ICT holds real promise in two particular areas: as tools for land use planning and management; and, as risk management tools for climate change adaptation.

 Question 1:  What ICTs are being used to improve land management (e.g. soils) and land use planning? Are they effective? What are the main constraints?

 Question 2: What type of ICTs are being used and how to make farming practices more environmentally sustainable? Are they effective? What are the biggest constraints?
 
 Question 3: What are some examples of how mobile phones are being used to get climate-smart agriculture information or data to farmers?
