their enterprises more efficient and profitable?”
[Workshop] Knowledge Sharing and Capacity Building Workshop for Precision Agriculture using UAV Techniques
in the South and Southeast Asian Region
14th-17th July 2022
Knowledge sharing meeting at Courtyard Hotel 1Borneo
Courtyard Hotel 1Borneo, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Purpose : The purpose of the knowledge sharing workshop is to present about the APN funded project to the project members and expert community; project goals, objectives, and activities; discuss about the ongoing activities and implementation and management plans. This meeting will also provide an opportunity to discuss about the roles of various partners and stakeholders in the project implementation and how to promote UAV/drone-based precision agriculture techniques to local farmers.
Objectives: This project will promote the adoption of UAVs-based PA techniques: (1) To identify priority areas in conventional agricultural practices that need UAV techniques to enhance agriculture production by organizing knowledge-sharing workshops for multiple stakeholders in the proposed countries. (2) To develop training modules to monitor and manage agro-ecosystem using UAV techniques and tailor-made training modules for each specific site. (3) To conduct training programs for the identified priority areas using developed training modules. (4) To disseminate the lessons learned and findings from multiple stakeholders engagement meetings and training modules through developing open-access portals (website) and policy papers for peer-reviewed journals.
