What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
The main goal of my organization, Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research (EIAR) is to develop new agricultural technologies to improve the livelihood of communities and to grant food security by demonstration of these technologies for scaling up of it. In order to achieve these objectives, knowledge, skill, and management of information to initiate man power to do this is the first thing must be done. Now I am trying to create and provide better working environment supported by ICT services to my organization. But there are serious issues that need attention of everyone. Some of these are limited knowledge, skill, budget and limited interest of everyone’s to overcome the challenging problems scientifically. They are also issues that require attention in the community. But above all the serious issue in the community that must get attention of every individuals, groups and government is poverty. I am confident that if these issues get more attention of every individual, of my organization, even of my country, it is easy to overcome challenging problems happening in the community.
