The development of agriculture is one of the essential issues of our generation, it will achieve food self-sufficiency for all and will have the direct consequences of diversifying the economy and offering new professional opportunities to the entire population. The major objective for the coming years is to design new ways of producing to face future challenges, particularly in terms of biodiversity, innovation and the attractiveness of the agricultural sector for youth.
The ecosystem creates an additional link between innovations and actual activities, to increase the value of the use of the technology and its potential for application. Entities bring information, expertise and objectivity to processes without having to perform other functions.
The information and expertise provided creates value by spreading through the community to better inform users and by being integrated into platform processes such as governance, reputation, regulation and pricing to improve community results.
The private ecosystem builds trust and improves collaboration among all key players and provides a platform for identity management, transparency and communication rules, data collection and decision models; All focused on distributed ledger technology.
“Agroecosystems are ecological systems modified by human beings to produce food, fibre or other agricultural products. Like the ecological systems they replace, agroecosystems are often structurally and dynamically complex, but their complexity arise primarily from the interaction between socio-economic and ecological processes” Gordon Conway
Drive the agricultural development through an environmental awareness rather than only regulatory pressure by creating new channels of consultation, expertise sharing and participation between all stakeholders.
In this perspective the ecosystem :
- Encourage integration of transdisciplinary science and local knowledge in participatory innovation processes that transform food systems;
- Develop relevant performance metrics for food systems that consider all environmental, social and economic impacts of food production and consumption;
- Develop and support research that foster co-learning between practitioners and researchers and horizontal dissemination of experience among practitioners;
- Analyze the legal bases and instruments used by public policies, examine the results obtained by the agro environmental measures and develop the analysis of possible models of organization and management;
- Access to the latest technologies and scientific support
- Supply yourself with adapted and approved products
- Sustainably increase production levels
- Provide a market-responsive offer and product certification
- Simplify and improve customer relations
- Measure the exact environmental foot print of solutions
- Access to land pilots
- Strengthen the links between research, innovation and training
- Facilitate appropriation and diffusion of innovations
- Access to complete and up-to-date data
- Improve and simplify private public partnership processes
- Facilitate product certifications and health standards
