FAO, Korea Telecom team up to advance digital agricultural innovation

13.06.2019 14:31 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, an International Seminar on Digital Agriculture Transformation is held within Rome, FAO reports. As to the report, the Seminar (Jun-12–13) is organized by FAO. The Seminar aims to foster an exchange among stakeholders(policy-makers, development partners, UN system, public and private sector, research and academia) to identify the challenges that the digital transformation brings to agriculture and rural systems, and explore pathways for assessing both the risk and opportunities from the digital transformation along the value chains and within rural areas. As to the report, within the Seminar, FAO and Korea Telecom (KT) agreed to work together to create more opportunities for youth to engage in smart farming and other forms of agricultural innovation and entrepreneurship. The agreement was signed by FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva and KT Chief Executive Officer Chang-Gyu Hwang. Through their partnership, FAO and KT aim to promote the use of technologies and innovations within development processes and value chains linked to agribusiness management and digital agriculture, and foster overall digital innovation and youth entrepreneurship in agrifood. Thus, in part., they will focus on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for youth practicing smart farming, which entails the use of innovative technologies to produce more and quality food and other agricultural products, such as fuel, fibre, textiles, seeds or feed. Besides, as part of the agreement, FAO and KT will organize an annual Innovation Challenge/Hackathon to harness the use of digital technologies for sustainable agriculture development and to give young agripreneurs an opportunity to explore and test new, high-potential ideas for smart agriculture. Additionally, FAO and KT will also host an Innovation and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp or masterclass offering youth educational and entrepreneurial programmes and activities in agribusiness and technological innovation.
