Online forum on the use of ICTs for Resilience - 28 November till 13 December 2016  

FAO and e-Agriculture.org are preparing an online forum discussion on "Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Resilience". The forum will take place from 28 November to 13 December 2016.

Many successful experiences on the use of ICTs for Resilience at FAO have already been documented such as eLocust, SWALIM, OpenForis, EMA-i, EMPRES-i, Drought preparedness in Uganda, Disaster preparedness in Dominican Republic etc.
