Project Summary

ICT-based smart agriculture has shown that it can contribute to making the food system more productive, sustainable and responsive in the context of climate change. It represents many opportunities to the Asia-Pacific region in particular, as many rely on agriculture for their livelihood. Sharing policy experiences and best practices on smart agriculture among APEC economies would be helpful in identifying tailored policies that contribute to sustainable growth and food security.

To this end, Korea plans to implement “Smart Agriculture Initiative for Sustainable Growth,” a 3-year work program to promote smart agriculture in the APEC. The objectives of the initiative are (1) to build capacity in utilizing smart agriculture based on shared experiences and peer learning and (2) lay the groundwork to facilitate and expand smart agriculture in the APEC region to achieve a sustainable and climate-friendly food system.

Under this initiative, Korea will hold a half-day workshop on sharing smart agriculture practices utilizing ICT on August 20, 2017 in Can Tho, Viet Nam. In 2018, Korea will host a study visit-cum-training workshop to improve understanding on the application of smart agriculture. The initiative will wrap up with a concluding workshop to discuss and draw policy recommendations in 2019.
