Information and Communication Technology: A Variable Tool for Mitigating Climate Change and Improving Crop Production

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Climate change is widely rec ognized as one of the most complex challenges that humankind has to face in the next decades. As agriculture is likely to suffer the biggest impacts, sound adaptation processes are required to sustain agricultural production and food system as a whole. IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, stressed the ability of decision-makers to manage information as an important factor determining the chance for a community to adapt to climate change. We all know that information and communications technologies (ICTs) have revolutionized our world. ICTs are also very vital to confronting the problems we face as a planet the threat of climate change. Indeed ICTs are part of the solution. Already these technologies are being used to cut emissions and help countries adapt to the effects of climate change. This is one of the reasons why the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can play an important role in this challenge
