Date: 28 November till 13 December 2016

FAO and are preparing an online forum discussion on “Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Resilience”.

Many successful experiences on the use of ICTs for Resilience at FAO have already been documented such as eLocust, SWALIM, OpenForis, EMA-i, EMPRES-i, Drought preparedness in Uganda, Disaster preparedness in Dominican Republic etc.

Based on these experiences and others from the partners and members of the e-Agriculture Community of Practice, a two week discussion forum will be held to capitalize on these experiences, to share knowledge and to work towards overall recommendations on the use of ICTs for Resilience.

The discussion will be guided by Subject Matter Experts from different organisations and facilitated by FAO’s Knowledge Outreach Team.

The forum can be accessed through the following link: ( questions will only be activated during the forum)
