“Asvis is a network that works in groups on the different goals of the UN agenda and the digital transition, if properly oriented, is a tool that can accelerate the achievement of these goals. Goal 2, which focuses on agriculture and food security, has focused heavily on data sharing, which must become a driving force for agriculture, as Europe recommends. The riskiest aspect of this process, however, concerns skills. A digital transition in a rural area is a 4.0 that doesn’t work. This message comes strong from Europe, which sees how much we are behind in Italy on this aspect as well as on the sustainable use of natural resources. We need to accelerate: bringing these skills to agronomists and operators in the sector is a huge leap, as well as increasing measurability for continuous improvement “. Elisabetta Cammarota, Asvis secretariat and co-author of the Asvis Notebook “The digital transition for sustainable development goals”, on the occasion of the event “How is sustainability measured?” organized by Campus Peroni.
“The digital – he continues – it must not be an end in itself but it must be at the service of natural processes, guaranteeing their sustainability and resilience also to ongoing climate changes. an assessment of the social impact, of any excessive pollution or of the shortage of primary and critical resources is also necessary. To move towards the direction of sustainability, a systemic approach is needed, with many actors collaborating, exactly as Birra Peroni is working ”.
