Adaptation and Adoption of Agricultural Sensors, Information Communication Technologies, and Smart Supply Chains to Support Smallholder Farmers

 

2021 IPB-FFTC Workshop (video conference)
Date: September 22, 2021, 09:00 – 17:00 (GMT+7)/ 10:00 – 18:00 (GMT+8)

Smart and resilient agriculture is essential to address the impacts of climate change, natural disasters, and infectious disease pandemics. In the Asian Pacific region, about 90% of enterprises and farmers are of the small to medium-scale types, with lower productivity and lower capacity of adoption to advanced technologies. Smallholder-inclusive plan and adaptation processes could be enhanced by considering local culture and existing practice and policy which are required to support small farmers and businesses to take advantage of the rapid development of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) and participate in smart farming systems.

FFTC in partnership with IPB University, Bogor, Indonesia, is organizing a video conference on “Adaptation and Adoption of Agricultural Sensors, Information Communication Technologies, and Smart Supply Chains to Support Smallholder Farmers” on September 22, 2021. The workshop will be joined and participated in by experts from Asian-Pacific countries who will share their knowledge and experiences in the following thematic topics:

  • Advances of agricultural sensors and other ICTs in smart farming
  • Successful cases of smart farming systems and supply chains (crops, livestock, aquaculture)
  • Support policies and public-private partnership

We sincerely welcome your participation. Registration is free!
