Just when you think all that personal technology has replaced the need for a trip to the local public library comes a report from pew research that silences that theory.

India: Future of e-Agriculture is revolving around mobile telephony | ICTPost.com | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Planning experts and economists have warned that the world is about to be confronted with a global food crisis unlike anything it has encountered before.  Unbridled population increase combined with longer life expectancies, land conversion, biofuel production and a shrinking agriculture sector exacerbated by rising oil prices and climate change may lead to food shortages and spiraling food prices at a global scale. Within this milieu, e-Agriculture and its emphasis on information and communication technologies and applications in the agricultural sector have been perceived as irrelevant. Not many are aware that the answer to the impending global food crisis may be found in e-Agriculture.

 

Bringing CoPs to the next level: Communities of Champions(CoCs)


The problems that confront e-Agriculture nowadays are to a scale that often requires policy interventions, not technological solutions. CoPs must now delve into the policy process and progress into Communities of Champions or CoCs. From CoIs that share information and CoPs that share solutions, e-Agriculture must move into CoCs that mobilize sectors through information, knowledge and advocacy.

ET Russell's curator insight, July 22, 2013 8:42 AM

I recommend you read the full article and take a look at the detailed 'Impact Pathway for Mobile and Women'.

[Situational Analysis - Context

Despite the rapid growth in mobile telephony in low and middle-income countries in recent years, women are 21% less likely than men to own a mobile phone. This has given rise to a mobile phone ‘gender gap’, where there are 300 million fewer female mobile subscribers than male subscribers in low to middle income countries. As a result, women are less likely to reap the benefits of using mobile phones, such as gain economic opportunities and to empower themselves at the household level, community level and beyond.]

ICT for climate-smart agriculture and "green growth": Online forum 5-16 March 2012 | e-Agriculture

ICT for climate-smart agriculture and "green growth": Online forum 5-16 March 2012 | e-Agriculture | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

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. The World Bank, FAO and the e-Agriculture community invite you to explore how information and communication technologies (ICT) can support "green growth" and climate-smart agriculture.

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. This will be the focus of the two week online discussion.

Share your experiences, ask questions to the subject matter experts, and explore new areas for ICT to have a positive impact on agriculture and climate change. Join us at http://www.e-agriculture.org/forums/current-forum
