AGRO-ICT Conference - Uganda
ICT- technologies, equipment and know-how for integrated and sustainable land- and farm-management
This 3 day event focuses on a rapid empowerment of African Farmers and a systemic growth of African Agriculture – with other words, to increase significantly the agro-sector. To set this into reality, the technological prerequisites are given, but open is the key question on how to handle INTEGRATION and COOPERATION. Future, sustainable successful agro-management systems have to consider the needs of the State, the Minister of Agriculture, forestry and environment, the needs of small holder farmers, those of large holdings, of cooperatives, that of the food industry, suppliers, retailers, end-users and affiliated business etc..(=Integration)
Another future key question will be how to use ICT, respectively how to handle the needs of public and private prospective users. Modern models will have to provide to both, the private and the public sector access to the same base data as there are geographic information, maps, ortho-images, weather data, soil maps, soil science data etc. Both groups will use them for their own needs, but will have to share or link results according to needs and necessity amongst each other.(=Cooperation).
This all is a big challenge. To find together practical and realizable solutions, we would like to include a range of local presentations into the conference program. The results of the 2-days presentations will be discussed on the third day where possible solutions for different African countries should be investigated in detail and worked out.
