TAMAP targets e-agriculture in Sri Lanka

28 March, 2021

Digital technologies can relieve disruption caused by the Covid-19 crisis in food supply chains and can, in particular, improve the lives of small farmers and agricultural workers. By providing  access to agricultural information in real time, farmers can take more informed decisions on their production and logistics. That is why, the EU-funded ‘Technical Assistance to the Modernisation of Agriculture Programme’ (TAMAP) in Sri Lanka targets e-agriculture as one of its key initiatives.

The TAMAP project, whose overall mandate is to support the creation of an enabling environment for sustainable and efficient agricultural production, launched a provincial training cycle for government officers in the agricultural field to raise awareness about digital agricultural applications.
