e-Agriculture is a global community of practice that facilitates dialogue, information exchange and sharing of ideas related to the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for sustainable agriculture and rural development.

The mission of e-Agriculture is to facilitate the discussion on the adoption and use of ICTs and digital innovations in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, natural resource management and rural development.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO of the UN) was assigned as facilitator of this action line and also took up the role of the facilitation of the e-Agriculture Community of Practice
