AGROVOC E-Conference: understanding the users

The purpose of the E-conference is to gather requirements for further AGROVOC enhancement directly from the AGROVOC user community, in order to analyze and incorporate those needs in the medium to long term plan and strategy, for the most used Agricultural thesaurus since 1980. AGROVOC is one of the resources that FAO are using in the NeOn Over-fishing Alerts Case Study.

The E-Conference has been a great success. A total of 43 countries are represented in the Conference. From the list of those who registered, over 55% are from Asia and the Pacific, Africa and Central and South America.

Read a recent article about the Conference on the NeOn Website.

Full report will be made available to everyone via the AIMS website.
