Science Forum Workshop Theme 3

ICT-enabled Agricultural Science for DevelopmentScenarios, Opportunities, Issues– A focus on ICT for Climate Change Adaptation in Agriculture –by Simone Sala


Scenarios

Scenarios

  • Vertical limit – Models are likely to substantially increase their precision in telling what changes will happen, when and where

  • Horizontal limit – Most of data already embeds (hidden) time/space information: ICT will make it explicit in the next 5 years, fostering data integration

  • Depth limit – Higher granularity of ICTs will promote communication networks to fill knowledge gaps

Opportunities

Opportunities

  • Shift in data collection and information generation through cheaper and simpler tools: from a cathedral approach to a bazaar approach

  • ICT can help dealing with uncertainty and complexity by integrating large amounts of data

  • Sustainable adaptation measures to changes can be planned and implemented through platforms for analysis and dialogue among different stakeholders at different levels

Issues

Issues

  • Interoperability among different applications is still far: integrated platforms need to be developed

  • ICT per se will never be enough to overcome information glocal divide:

    • A participatory R&D approach is crucial for successful ICT applications at community level

    • Peer-to-Peer communication systems are needed to generate timely, reliable and clear information

  • What about impact? Need for new indicators, reflecting multi-disciplinary and system approach
