FAO empowers young Syrians with knowledge on digital agriculture

May 2022

FAO, through its Smallholder Support Programme, has introduced digital agriculture to Syrians to promote innovation and digitalization. In March 2022, a group of young people from seven governorates across the country completed FAO’s specialized training on the use of technology and entrepreneurship in agriculture

Sixty people, out of the hundreds who attended a series of online awareness sessions, qualified to participate in an intensive training camp that focused on digital agriculture, design thinking, proposal development and presentation skills. People who had a background in farming, agricultural studies and information technology were selected to participate, and the training enabled them to formulate project proposals that integrated information and communication technology with agriculture. Twelve innovative business proposals were selected by a panel of experts to be presented at the final event, and the panel then awarded the top three proposals.
