To facilitate deployment and navigate the broad spectrum of ICT solutions for agriculture, ITU and FAO established the e-Agriculture Solutions Forum (ESF) as a collaboration and knowledge sharing platform for ecosystem stakeholders and to highlight the positive impact of ICT on the agricultural sector. The ESF brings together stakeholders to showcase solutions, strengthen a Community-of-Practice, accelerate innovation, and to find ways scale up implementation of proven solutions at national level.
The first iteration of the ESF was convened by ITU and FAO in 2016 in Thailand, and brought together a variety of ecosystem stakeholders from the Asia-Pacific region and internationally. The forum was focused on delivering a train-the-trainer workshop about developing national e-agriculture strategies and its national implementation.
The 2018 e-Agriculture Solutions Forum will take place in Nanjing, China from 15-17 November 2018, under the theme “To support the use of sustainable e-agriculture solutions and services,” and is addressed to all ecosystem stakeholders. More information via
