SADC collects agricultural data for regional use

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is currently holding the first of a series of workshops to collect information on agricultural practices and technology that will subsequently be made available throughout the region, reports APA on Wednesday 24 March in the Seychelles capital, Victoria. The workshop has been jointly organized by the Seychelles Agricultural Agency and the European Union under the theme, “Development of an agricultural information, communication and knowledge management (AICKM) strategy in agricultural research and development”. The workshop was opened by the agricultural agency’s chief executive, Antoine-Marie Moustache, who stated its main aim was to promote the importance of distributing and exchanging agricultural information and technology among research and development stakeholders. “This should lead to the creation of an online integrated agricultural information system shared by SADC Member States,” Mr Moustache added. The information will cover related topics such as universities and institutions offering courses in agriculture and the types of goods produced by farmers in SADC countries. Following the Seychelles meeting, other SADC members are expected to hold further workshops in order to create their own database of agricultural information.
