Strengthening the Prevention Strategies and Early Warning Systems of Agricultural Disasters through Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Seminar
2018-11-05
  

    Agriculture meteorological disasters threaten crop production and stable supply of agriculture products, especially the impact of heavy rain and typhoon on agriculture is more intense. In the face of future climate changing, the frequency and intensity of disasters will be more extreme. It is necessary to construct the more complete and efficient disaster prevention system to mitigate the impact of extreme weather. Particularly, emphasizing the development of early warning systems, which are especially important for reducing disaster losses and building resilient agriculture. At the same time, through ICT technology will provide early warning information to farmers in an easy-to-understand content, and strengthen farmers’ self-resistance ability to prevent disasters.

    The Institute and the Food and Fertilizer Technology Center for the Asian and Pacific Region held an international seminar on "ICT Strengthening Prevention Strategies and Early Warning Systems for Agricultural Disasters" in the International Conference Hall of Taiwan agriculture Research Institute (TARI) in October 22-23, 2018. Experts and scholars at home and abroad are invited to share their experiences in agricultural disaster prevention, especially using ICT technology to strengthen early prevention of crop disasters. The seminar included 14 national and domestic researchers from Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand, reporting the research results and sharing experiences, in addition, through the Firm Exhibition to introduce the advance of ICT Technology in Taiwan.

    This seminar focused on the introduction of early warning system developed by countries, including meteorological disasters, pest and disease monitoring and greenhouse environmental monitoring, especially emphasizing meteorological information for value added and satellite imagery monitor crop damage by disasters, focusing on the concept and implementation of disaster risk reduction, analyzing and reducing the impact of disasters through systematic approach. In addition, new disaster warning technology will be used to enhance farmers autonomous ability to manage crops for disasters, and construct a disaster information dissemination mechanism based on ICT technology, to transmit instant disaster information to farmers, and to assess the harvest and economic losses caused by agricultural disasters. We hope that through interactive discussions can help the development of climate smart agriculture and reduce the negative impacts of natural disasters in food supply chain. In this seminar, we will also reach consensus and hope that countries can share experiences as well as seek cooperation opportunities.
