Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute (TARI), Council of Agriculture, Taiwan Oct. 22-24, 2018

    Agricultural disasters, especially typhoons, heavy rains, and drought, threaten the farmer’s income and stable supply of agricultural products. Facing the challenges of future climate change, the frequency and intensity of disasters will be more extreme, and a complete with more efficient disaster reduction system must be constructed to mitigate the impact of extreme weather. As a specific way like the development the disaster prevention technology of important crops production areas, emphasizing the functions of pre-disaster warning, identify the disaster alert area when disaster happen, and post-disaster survey for the rehabilitation of crops. It also clarifies the critical conditions of different crops and growth periods, estimates the probability of occurrence of crop losses, and establishes a complete knowledge database for crop disasters.

    In this seminar will emphasize the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematic efforts to analyze and reduce the causal factors of disasters. Wise management of crops and the environment using innovative disaster prevention technologies, and setup the early warning systems by ICT techniques to send the disaster messages to farmers, evaluate the vulnerability of cultivation and economic lose by disaster. In other hand, we invite ICT vendors to demonstrate the latest products for environmental monitoring and crop disaster (or cultivation) warning system. The goals of meeting is through the multidimensional discussion will help the development of climate smart agriculture and reduce the impact of natural hazards on food production systems.
