    Digital Villages in Tajikistan 2024
    Also available in:

    Recognizing the opportunities, but also the potential risks, offered by ICT for accelerating agricultural and rural development, in January 2021 FAO launched the Digital Villages Initiative (DVI) with the ambitious goal to convert at least 1000 villages around the world into Digital Villages. With DVI, FAO is supporting a digital rural transformation process to address agrifood systems’ challenges and improve the livelihoods and resilience of rural communities.   The flyer details the activities that are ongoing as part of the digital Villages initiative in Tajikistan. Digital Villages enhance rural resilience and food security by providing farmers with digital tools for accessing inputs, market information, and alternative sales channels online. They deliver real-time data on prices, weather, and pests, enabling informed decisions on crop management and purchasing. These initiatives also simplify obtaining financial aid and insurance, with streamlined online applications and digital fund reception. This contributes to the development of the four betters and the achievement of SDG goals through localization facilitated through digitalization. The projects detailed in the flyer can be used for general information for other interested countries and regions.

    The FAO-ITU E-agriculture strategy guide (available at http://www.fao.org/3/a-i5564e.pdf) is actively being used to assist countries in the successful identification, development and implementation of sustainable ICT solutions for agriculture. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, and connected analytics has great potential to support and address some of the most pressing problems faced by agriculture in terms of access to actionable real-time quality data. Goldman Sachs predicts that the agriculture sector will be the second largest user of drones in the world in the next five years. Sensor networks based on the Internet of things (IoT) are increasingly being used in the agriculture sector to meet the challenge of harvesting meaningful and actionable information from the big data generated by these systems. This publication is the second in the series titled E-agriculture in action (2016), launched by FAO and ITU, and builds on the previous FAO publications that highlight the use of ICT for agriculture such as Mobile technologies for agriculture and rural development (2012), Information and communication technologies for agriculture and rural development (2013) and Success stories on information and communication technologies for agriculture and rural development (2015). The ultimate aim is to promote successful, scalable, sustainable and replicable ICT for agriculture (ICT4Ag) solutions.

    Five countries in Asia-Pacific, namely Bhutan, Fiji, Papua New Guinea,Philippines and Sri Lanka expressed the need to improve theirresearch-extension-farmer continuum to better serve farmers and ruralcommunities involved in agriculture, and make available the rightinformation at the right time, through the appropriate delivery medium.The information gap between agricultural extension, outreach servicesand farmers has widely been attributed as one of the leading challengesof sustainable food production. In order to bridge this gap, the projectaimed to assist countries to develop national e-agriculture strategies,and to identify and develop sustainable information and communicationtechnologies (ICTs) in agriculture services and solutions, as well ascreating successful partnerships among national stakeholders.
