Ciencia, tecnología e innovación



The collection and analysis of meteorological data is essential to ensure a proper water management. The functioning of climate sensors and meteorological stations for agricultural uses is presented.


In Sri Lanka, FAO is building capacities of local irrigation experts to monitor water productivity, identify water productivity gaps and propose solutions to reduce these gaps with real-time data from the FAO WaPOR platform. Thereby contributing to a sustainable increase of agricultural production that benefits farmers and safeguards the environment.


This short video looks at how a cooperative-run Digital Village Service Centre in Lahiri Mohanpur in rural Bangladesh is promoting innovation and connectivity. Thereby transforming the lives and livelihoods of smallholder dairy farmers and processors.
