Project Summary

This project creates a new approach to share knowledge by transferring earth observation science technologies on smart agriculture to APEC economies for delivering solutions to challenges on climate-related agricultural management. Under extreme climate conditions, promoting technological application is essential to climate resilience and adaptation.

The project aims to enhance capacity building and foster cooperation networks from an activity - a virtual workshop, in earth science and geospatial technology applications for agriculture, via a virtual learning platform. 

Experts will transfer knowledge of principles, basic concept and case studies to participants, who are in public and private sectors. Resulting from outreach, the participants can deliver the contributions of technological-based agricultural management towards the region under joint collaborations of stakeholders: public, private and academic sectors.

The outcomes of the project will deliver new approaches to transform traditional agriculture to SMART agricultural management leading to food security of the region.

Relevance

Relevance – Region:  APEC’s the strategic framework for food security mentions about food insecurity, rising in biofuel production, and climate change challenges with comprehensive APEC Food System approach. As the world population continues to grow as well as extreme climate issues, the increasing access to food, availability of food, and supply reliability are significantly recognised and concerned. 

Space technology and geo-informatics integrating with geodata analytics and earth science are critical supporting tools for efficient smart farming management platform. Due to variable climate situation, climate-smart agriculture with space technology and geo-informatics is significant approach in order to meet stability of agricultural productivity and incomes; adapting and building resilience to climate change; and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. 

This project will significantly increase capacity of farming management and transit agricultural industry in the region to be operated by digital technology. In addition, given that climate affects to agricultural activities in regional and global levels, the contents of the project are designed to address the importance on involvement from many APEC economies to share their opinions with the purpose of mutual interests in smart agriculture. This project also provides an opportunity of creating collaboration among APEC members which share characteristic similarity on the weather or have similar climate conditions. 

In Thailand, the smart system has been already applied geospatial technology for crop monitoring platform. For example, CropMet is applied for weather monitoring and early warning system; and CropHealth is applied for plant health monitoring and assessment system. Since the cooperation between the government partners and private sectors, this platform can be adopted as a prototype to other developing APEC economies as proper context. The economies will be enhanced by knowledge development of adaptative technologies and innovations for climate situation in their regions. 

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: The project will deliver new know-how on Climate-Smart Agriculture to diverse types of stakeholders through the virtual workshop and knowledge exchange for participants from APEC. These activities will to achieve main objectives of the project, to enhance capacity building for APEC economies and foster cooperation network, which are consistent with the criteria of APEC Support Fund – General Fund and ECOTECH Priority Theme: harnessing technologies for the future. The impact from the project will reinforce capacity of APEC economies in modern agricultural technology making critical contributions to region’s economic growth. According to APEC’s Policy Partnership for Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI)’s priority on theme of “Enhancing Innovation and Sustainability Through Inclusive Collaboration”, this project seeks contribution of agricultural innovative pathway, based on geo-spatial data and earth observation science, from stakeholders, including of public and private sectors, institution and civil society from implementing-level officers in the region in order to generate new approaches for adapting to each context appropriately; and focuses on how to deliver climate-smart agricultural knowledge and operations from practical activities to agricultural association in a community level. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project will promote a concept of climate-smart agriculture among policy makers and stakeholders in order to support the economic growth, social capital asset and human well-being of the people and deepen the spirit of community in the Asia Pacific to build on and complement the work of other relevant regional and global institutions for the climate-smart agriculture. The innovation sharing is in special techniques with solid methodology and demonstrates basic concept, case studies and implements the new approaches to transform traditional agriculture to be SMART within the region.

APEC developing member economies are encouraged to join the project, especially Indonesia; Malaysia; Viet Nam; Chile; Peru. The participants, will be encouraged to share new approaches to solving climate extreme issues on agricultural management and acknowledge innovative technological applications as well as having opportunity to participate in  the project via knowledge transfer from prominent international experts so that the climate change issue, being considerable obstacles for agricultural cultivation, can be solved by advanced technologies for human wellbeing, economic stability and mitigate carbon emission. These implementations will create the opportunity to access to space technology and reduce disparities in using advance technologies for agriculture management between APEC economies conforming the APEC’s capacity building goals and objectives and APEC’s Framework for Strengthening Economic Cooperation and Development.

ASEAN Research and Training Centre for Space Technology and Applications (ARTSA), under mainly driven by Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Public Organization) – a space agency in Thailand- is potential to be a hub for cooperating and supporting the project to increase personnel capacity as well as strengthen the network of academic knowledge and research collaboration. The new framework of ARTSA also focuses on enhancing capacity building on geospatial data and Earth Observation based on Bio - Circular-Green (BCG) Economy and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Objectives

To enhance capacity building in Climate-Smart Agriculture by applying geospatial technology in order to foster proactive cooperation network on efficient smart agriculture management for achieving sustainable development and climate resilience for APEC economies.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: Two of Three priorities of APEC Malaysia 2020 are digital economy and technology and driving innovative sustainability that relate in this project as to create digital community for smart agriculture with leadership and partners in APEC, and to rise up innovative agriculture management for food security with spatial informatics and data science approaches.

Besides the theme for APEC is “Optimising Human Potential towards a Future of Shared Prosperity” which reflects the forum’s recent emphasis on taking a people-centered approach to planning programs and initiatives. This has resulted in studies, workshops and activities geared towards promoting inclusivity, equal opportunity, digital education, assistance for small businesses as well as environmental awareness.

In addition, APEC has addressed food security issue as a challenge in the region, and fostered development and adoption of new agricultural technologies. The project will support the intention by creating dissemination of technical knowledge and exchange of views in the scope of new technology that can reduce the cost of production in agricultural sector, and sharing adaptation experiences to climate challenges, which will enhance capacity for policy-making and operational levels.

3) 1 Virtual learning platform of smart agricultural management using for the workshop

The Virtual Platform is a smart agricultural management online platform to connect among participants and experts for sharing knowledge, accessing geospatial data and case studies of each economy in APEC region. This platform will be a channel to enhance interaction between participants and experts for capacity building and foster cooperation networks of APEC economics, and will include web-based learning, online discussion and geospatial data resources exchange.  This is because it is an online activity with technical implementation.

Therefore, a virtual platform is needed for effective teaching and learning. The virtual platform will be divided into 2 parts: 1) a technical part as a dashboard for Geospatial data, mapping and analysis process as well as being available for data sharing and mapping; and 2) a part of sharing lecture, exchange ideas and discussion.  Due to the complex of this technology, it needs a platform to show data, to download data, implement some steps for data analysis. Otherwise, it is difficult for them to understand contents. The virtual learning platform is a dominant tool for knowledge sharing and course contents for this project.

The main users are divided into 2 groups: 1) the experts, who will provide details of methodology and recommendation for climate and agricultural monitoring 2) participants of the workshop, which are technical users in APEC economies.  PO will consider and provide authorization to users by creating individual user and password for them.  The authorised users can access the platform for gathering information, discussion via online menu as well as data and knowledge sharing.  PO will gather online data source, and will prepare all data, in basic geospatial data layers such as satellite data, climate data, GIS data (e.g., crop data, administrative boundaries, land use, and related accessible layers for all economies)

4) Workshop Report

Risks

There are two major risks that might be challenges towards project operation.

1) The first, COVID-19 epidemic has been ongoing outbreak; the results from pandemic lead to travel restriction, social distancing for operating activities and delay on implementation.  To drive the project under the circumstances, virtual platform will be generated, for project meeting and forum discussion, with supporting tools and documents via online access. Therefore, virtual workshop will be prepared for the events, which include both online and onsite participation (for Thailand participants).

2)  Another concerned point is the low contribution from participants, which will be obstacles to meet the purposes of workshops and exchange activities. The target groups, key persons, and experts will be clarified and carefully selected for ensuring to have assertive participants for raising idea contributions and brainstorming on platform development efficiently.

Linkages

As PPSTI recognises Earth and Marine Observing (EMO) Framework and 10-year Action Plan, the project’s activities will be undertaken on the basis of information presented by the framework report that services from the EMO technologies could provide added value to agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors of APEC economies up to US$37 billion. Hence the EMO obviously plays an important role in the agriculture management systems allowing approach to maximize harvesting productivity. Furthermore, the economies that have capacity to absorb the applications provided by EMO will gain benefits more than less EMO absorption economies. This capacity building activities accord to the Targeted Priorities of the Action Plan, as well as provide Analytical Capacity which is a stage in EMO value chain, delivering strong technical necessity in smart agriculture to attract funding to support EMO missions and acknowledgement from policy maker level. 

Additionally, the outputs from the project could complement the implementation of Agricultural Technical Cooperation Working Group by sharing the Earth Science Technology tools and Geospatial data for Climate-Smart Agriculture. The results from the project can be analyzed to update agricultural status of economies participated in the project and lesson learned discussed among the attendance. The information and resource in the workshop can be reported to the working group in order to support strategic plan to guide developing economies to conduct their Climate-Smart Agriculture enhancement ways. The other associated APEC fora are also welcomed to be informed the smart technology knowledge and Geospatial data to support their plan or activities.         

This project will interconnect stakeholders to climate-smart agricultural community. Thailand has been continuously supporting and investing in R&D and technology, particularly in the area of food security. Moreover, APEC is well-positioned to address current and emerging food security challenges in the region as a vehicle for cooperation on food and agricultural issues because the global export agriculture producing economies are in APEC economies. The strengthening communication and capacity building in agricultural management and science-based technology to support development, application and trade of innovative agriculture are likely to be achieved by sharing of experience and generating contributions from sophisticated experts and government officials from relevant organisations. The role of government and private sectors will be enhanced to mobilise the resource skills and expertise in support of APEC Action Plan for Reducing Food Loss and Waste (FLW). ARTSA as a hub for capacity building in the region with extensive globally networks, there is a collaboration with international networks, which is prominent in advanced technological applications such as ITC - an international educational institution, the Netherlands and SAFE initiative, Japan, as focusing on food security research projects in Asia-Pacific region. Climate-smart agricultural community will contribute benefits of both economic and social dimensions toward APEC economies on food security and agricultural sustainability by integrating of stakeholders’ participation.

Sustainability

This project has planned the effective way to build long-term capacity of applying geospatial technology to agricultural management as the following:

1) The knowledge and data sharing established in this project will be provide accessibility to resources, technical supports, cooperative partners, and stakeholders for economies with updated information and techniques in the field of geospatial technology. The participants can apply these resources for their projects.

2) The participants from the workshop will act as the coordinators to transfer this technology to their home economies for both who are involved with policy making and agricultural operation. This activity will continue the capacity building and data sharing to distribute for APEC region.

3) Pilot projects and recommendations proposed during the workshop will be the initial steps for developing to joint projects or domestic projects. In addition, by using the information and techniques established in this project, the projects can be carried out and continued for implementation.

4) This platform will be available in January 2022 and to be continuously active at least 6 months under contractor contract after that GISTDA will be responsible for the maintenance until the end of year in 2023. For its sustainability, the platform will be disseminated, including APEC branding, at international academic events and activities jointly organised by GISTDA and networks, as well as in academic newsletter for example, the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Student Consortium (ISPRS SC) Newsletter. 

This project will be benefits for sustainable communication and implementation to transforming development of food security for sustainability in APEC economies. Furthermore, GISTDA-Thailand will assist to facilitate the project and contribute feasibilities by supporting the future projects and activities.  

Workshop Report, which a brief of workshop concept, concised workshop summary outputs and outcomes, analysis of discussion and contributions, and introduction to the virtual learning platform as well as a list of participants, will be disseminated to the participants and networks within APEC region via email to focal points and posting on the PO websites (webpages of ARTSA and GISTDA).  Also, PO will disseminate the virtual workshop event as press via the websites and other social media channels.
