As weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable and weather events extreme, Mobile IoT and Big Data technologies and applications will play a key role in helping farmers and the broader agricultural sector increase their resilience to climate change.
Key questions that will be addressed include:
- What are the technology assets that the private sector, including mobile operators, can offer to improve weather monitoring and forecasting in developing countries?
- Which services strengthening the climate resilience of the rural sector can most benefit from Mobile IoT and Big Data?
- What business models can support the creation of viable public-private partnerships in Mobile IoT and Big Data for climate resilience?
