Project Description

Integration of spatial and non-spatial information, i.e. integration of bio-physical resources, infrastructure, investments and farmers information Establishment of Farmers Registry and Inventory of Agriculture and Fisheries Investments Database
Updating of selected thematic maps and generation of SAFDZ-related decision maps

General Objective

To establish a geospatial database of agricultural resources information, agrisocio and agriculture/fisheries infrastructure and support services organized in GIS framework

Farmers database & inventory of investments

Specific Objectives

To provide a precise/accurate mapping of the countrys A&F resources using RS/GIS technologies; including crop suitability, inventory of public/private investments such as FMR, irrigations, warehouses, etc.

To develop RS/GIS-based decision support systems for sustainable management of agricultural production areas at the national, regional, and local levels; e.g. , crop suitability, vulnerability assessment, damage assessment due to extreme climatic events

Specific Objectives

To improve the institutional capacity/capability of the various DA RFUs, selected Bureaus and attached Agencies, and regional centers with regard to the application of space technologies for informed decision making and intelligent planning. To establish a reliable database of farmers and farm parcels to be used for more effective planning, program design and monitoring of agriculture support services. To develop an Integrated Development Plans (IDPs) for the agriculture sector

Component 4 Integrated Development Plan


Implementation Strategy

It is recommended that the system should get inputs at the local (municipal, provincial and regional) level to facilitate the monitoring and evaluation of the performance of each zone/area. The system would also get relevant data from the appropriate feeder systems.

Implementation Strategy

Also, since each region is distinct from one another, the Regional GIS Laboratories established under the UEGIS Project should not only be for sharing the DA GIS to the regions but also for the regions to help in the integration of the GIS effort of the Department.

Application/Expected Benefits

More precise/accurate spatial information for better planning and decision-making

Basis for Improving Service Delivery of the DA Establish database for the existing agriculture and fishery investment resources which eventually will be used to determine the gaps and/or needs of the sector Basis for Developing Private/Public Partnerships (PPP) in meeting the needs of the sector

Application/Expected Benefits

Identification of vulnerable areas in the light of climate change A&F insurance claims assessment More accurate A&F production forecasting/ prediction and markets Improved Governance Monitoring and evaluation Characterizing production environments Distribution network management for agribusiness Minimizing risks of resource investment
