The seminar is organized by Assortis, the service provider that since 2000 promotes International Cooperation for Development projects, and promoted by the International Partnerships InfoPoint. Assortis will bring together complementing perspectives, rooted in ongoing experience & set ground for a rich debate so that the audience will get insights on sustainable use of resources & food production that are the core of green economy.
The seminar aims at exploring the impact of natural resource conflicts on people livelihood and how ICT could contribute to a more sustainable agriculture. ICT can transform agriculture & livestock practices as well as supporting farmers in adapting to the changing environment.
The debate will offer an insightful first-hand analysis from the field on how the use of resources by small-scale & large-scale food production differs, impacts environment and causes conflicts. Within this framework we will discover how ICT tools can make a difference. In fact rural areas in developing countries are a theatre of competition for land and water resources between different systems of food production, hence resource-related conflicts arise very often and have a major social impact on people & livelihoods. These conflicts are further exacerbated by environmental degradation and climate change. ICTs plays an important role in: i) mitigating social and environmental impacts of food production; ii) supporting local producers in their businesses; and iii) helping them to use resources in more sustainable and peaceful ways.
Speakers are engaged in the Assortis network and will bring different experience from countries such as Nigeria in resource conflict resolution; spatial transformation of rural Senegal & techniques of participatory mapping backing local land uses.
