The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the e-Agriculture Community of Practice (CoP) are launching a call for good and promising practices on the use of ICTs for Agriculture in the region of Europe and Central Asia.
The call aims at collecting lessons learned and recommendations of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), also called digital technologies, for agriculture initiatives in Europe and Central Asia and sharing them among the members and followers of the e-Agriculture Community of Practice and beyond.
The selected good and promising practices will be disseminated on the e-Agriculture platform and social media and will be part of an online FAO publication on good practices on the use of ICTs for Agriculture in Europe and Central Asia.
A presentation on experience capitalization and good practices in ICTs for agriculture is available in English and Russian, giving more information on the methodology. You can request methodological support from FAO, directly on the e-Agriculture platform or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The good or promising practice you wish to document should be about the use of ICTs for agriculture, livestock, fisheries, forestry or rural development in general. It can cover a wide range of topics such as the value chain, agrometeorological information, or precision agriculture. The proposed ICT for agriculture practices should be useful and accessible for smallholder farmers. We pay attention to gender issues and suggest taking them into account in the documentation. This call is focussing on practices from Europe and Central Asia.
The deadline for submission of good and promising practices: 8 October 2017
