Creating and Operating National Agricultural Information Exchange Points
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Create and operate a national information exchange point (NIXP). This service would collect currently existing domestic agricultural information and help in the production additional agricultural content suited for the national audience. In countries where an IXP (Internet Exchange Point) exist, a hosting site connected to this national backbone would be created. In less advantaged nations, the content would be hosted at all the significant ISPs (Internet Service Providers).
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 4: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
