Special Session on
Risk and Uncertainty in Agriculture:
“The role of Collaborative and Interoperable Systems”
Scope. Risk and Uncertainty in Agriculture are currently generating major challenges to run effective agriculture production
systems (APS). Uncertainties such as weather, pests, diseases, volatile market conditions and commodity prices make APS
more difficult and expensive to be managed. Thus, managing risk and uncertainty has turned an important subject for
agriculture stakeholders, who normally are forced to over use, produce and stock resources to mitigate, transfer, and cope
with risk. Hence, collaborative, interoperable and timely shared information, across agriculture stakeholders, is essential to
managing risks, in special when farmers need a variety of information to make choices for managing risk, which also implies
having the right knowledge and expertise to handle the current systems and technologies available in the market. Hence,
collaborative and interoperable developments of Information communication technologies (ICTs) have proven to be highly cost
effective instruments for collecting, storing, processing, and disseminating information about risk. Successful efforts are, most
of the times, regarded to cooperation amongst technology providers, agricultural experts, financial intermediaries, state
governments and institutions, donors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), mobile operators, and others in the private
sector, that from a variety of perspectives can contribute to mitigate risk and uncertainty in agriculture, which is still a major
Therefore, and aligned with the activities of the H2020 RUC-APS project (www.ruc-aps.eu), this special session will have the
objective of exploring and gathering the state-of-the-art on conceptual and applied interoperable solutions to support
Agriculture decision-making once facing uncertainty and risk. This will include the use of ICT, simulations, data analysis,
precision farming and innovation approaches in agriculture that will help agriculture stakeholders improving their performance
and supporting multidisciplinary and collaborative solutions in Agriculture production systems consider the current socioeconomic trends and challenged in Agriculture.
