The e-Agriculture team is launching a user survey to obtain feedback from the Community of Practice and interested users to better understand their needs, interaction on the platform and how content can be designed to meet their needs. The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and it will be open until the August 31, 2019.
The e-Agriculture Community of Practice and the platform is in the process of being studied with a view to a redesigned solution that closely meet the needs of the community. Technology also provides a potential to better achieve the reach and needs of our community members. Currently, the survey is launched in English, other FAO language versions are being prepared.
The survey invites participation from interested individuals working in digital agriculture to provide input towards the improvement of the e-Agriculture Platform.

e-Agriculture is a global Community of Practice, where people from all over the world exchange information, ideas, and resources related to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for sustainable agriculture and rural development. The community is made up of over 15,000 members and has more than 49,000 followers on Twitter and 10,000+ from LinkedIn from 190 countries and territories.
In the past decade, e-Agriculture has documented many successful projects, which have used ICTs to improve farmers’ access to agricultural information and knowledge. One of the early comparative advantage that the e-Agriculture platform exploited was the ‘forum’ discussions, which focused on chosen topics in ICTs and Agriculture.
