FAO event brings digital transformation to agriculture in Central, South-East Europe

Mobile phones, satellites, radio, remote sensing, internet connection, Big Data – a non-exhaustive list tools that have revolutionized our lives in many ways. They could have the same effect on agriculture and food production.

This is the rationale behind an FAO-organized regional e-agriculture forum that starts here today, targeting the countries of Central and South Eastern Europe, where the use of information and communication technologies in food and agriculture is not as widespread as it could be.

Representatives of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Kosovo* will discuss how to move ahead with applying information and communication technologies (ICTs) in agriculture. For three days, they will learn from FAO, other international organizations, countries with more experience, and private-sector representatives.
