This presentation briefly describes two projects that are being implemented by CABI Central and West Asia in Pakistan.
E-Zaraat [Urdu for e-Agriculture] is a ground breaking project funded by DFID. Through this project the entire Agriculture Extension data collection and reporting has been automated. The data from the field is collected via a mobile application. The reports are generated through a web application. A three way help line backed by experts and FAQs was also established to cater to the needs of the farmers and improve reach of the extension workers in the field.
The second project has pioneered e-learning in Agriculture in Pakistan. The project is funded by United States Department of Agriculture. The project focuses on improving the capacity of the Regulatory officers in Pakistan by providing e-learning modules on Sanitary and Photo-sanitary measures. This would eventually help in improving international trade with Pakistan. The project is being implemented in partnership with USDA and Texas A&M University
