E-agriculture strategy discussed


9/13/2018

ISLAMABAD: The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, in collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), organised a two-day consultation workshop to identify the road-map for e-agriculture strategy in Pakistan.

Initiatives were aimed at identifying effective and efficient ways for reaching more farmers, transferring knowledge, adaptation to climate change and supporting modernisation of Pakistan’s agri-sector by using available information and communication technologies.
 
The consultation process will lead to the preparation of a framework for providing support for the formulation of national e-agriculture policy which will ensure improvement in livelihoods, food security and value-chain development.
