Established by the United Nations, the e-Agriculture initiative is primarily concerned with the "conceptualization, design, development, evaluation and application of innovative ways to use information and communication technologies (ICT) in the rural domain, with a primary focus on agriculture." This website is an integral part of the initiative, as it is set up to help interested parties exchange experiences and best practices related to this emerging field. Persons unfamiliar with the field should start their journey through the site by clicking on the "Global Examples" area. Here they will find items such as Digital Green, which is an agricultural training and advising system that seeks to benefit rural farmers by disseminating targeted information through digital videos. After that, visitors should make their way to the "Resources" section. As might be expected, this section contains learning tools and activities, along with a glossary of e-agriculture terms. Finally, visitors can also login to take an active part in their forums and create their own customized list of resources.
