Back ground
  • Reliable agricultural information constitutes a
    corner stone in the planning of agricultural
    development and formulating relevant policies.
    The availability of this information is critical
    in order to enable those involved in the
    agricultural sector, whether they are individuals
    or institutions, to make decisions on valid and
    scientific bases. However, the currently
    available agricultural information in Jordan is
    inadequate as a result of many factors, in
    particular

5
  • The array of institutions that collect
    agricultural data and information, and the
    diversity of the methodologies they use, which
    often leads to contradictory and unreliable
    information.
  • The lack of certain types of data and information
    required in support of the development of the
    agricultural sector.
  • The lack of coordination and collaboration
    between institutions concerned with data
    collection and information provision on the one
    hand, and information users in the public and
    private sectors on the other.

6
  • The National Agricultural Development Strategy
    (2002-2010), which was approved by His Majesty
    the King on 15 July 2002, referred specifically
    to the development of information and
    communication capabilities at a national and
    sub-national level.
  • The common vision derived from the workshop was
    to establish a National Agricultural Information
    System (NAIS) that would strengthen and improve
    agricultural information generation, management,
    dissemination and exchange for policy-makers,
    senior managers and national stakeholder groups,
    using web-based applications and tools.

7
  • The envisaged NAIS was expected to assemble and
    make accessible information that would
  • -Support policy and decision-making in relation
    to national planning.
  • Provide the basis for monitoring and assessing
    agricultural production and development.
  • Support research and development, and disseminate
    the outputs.
  • Support extension services.
  • Provide an institutional memory for the MOA.

8
NAIS
  • Project SymbolTCP/JOR/3102 (D)
  • Starting Date October 2007
  • Completion Date December 2009
  • Government Ministry responsible for project
    execution Ministry of Agriculture
  • FAO Contribution US272 000

9
  • NAIS is a national platform for Information and
    knowledge sharing and exchange for Agricultural
    Research and Development (ARD) for target groups
    and stakeholders in Jordan

10
NAISObjective
  • The objective of the project is to strengthen the
    capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture to
    establish an effective and efficient information
    system that will support agricultural development
    and ensure food security in Jordan, based on the
    needs and demands of its stakeholders and
    integrating the various resources in the MOA.

11
NAIS Modules

System (NAIS), including modules on documents,
institutions, experts and projects, facilitating
access to other agricultural information services
and databases relevant to the Jordanian
agricultural sector

modern information technologies and to the
strategic management approaches and skills
required to implement new structures and
procedures for effective information management

- A project proposal for further development of
NAIS formulated and ready for submission to
potential donors
15

institution in Jordan for providing a technical
assessment study for the existing information
systems and applications in MOA and other
stakeholders organizations for integrating
various existing applications into a NAIS
application
20
- Workshop to discuss the draft national
information strategy for agricultural science and
technology with the steering committee and
stakeholders (27/8/2008).

    staff to receive on the job training programme in
    information management systems/ tools development
    and management.

22
-Procurement of hardware and software at each
site provided by Government of Jordan, where
necessary, as required for accessing the NAIS via
the Internet.
  • - Workshop to present the revised national
    information strategy for agricultural science and
    technology to the steering committee and
    stakeholders

23
  • - Implementation for NAIS development prototype
    by FAO/RNE is completed and deployment of NAIS
    modules/ systems are taking place
