Local first: a different way of localizing technologies on a grassroots level


ICTforAg 2023

At WeRobotics and the Flying Labs Network, we believe in the power of local expertise to sustainably and responsibly localize technology and create actionable impact for climate action, development and aid solutions, first and foremost on a grassroots level. Technologies are just a tool. Lasting and meaningful impact is created when local experts implement and apply technologies with their vision, locally, in a way that works best for their communities.

Learn from our real-world example and journey over the past 7+ years of introducing and localizing drones, data and AI to local communities, including agricultural communities in a sustainable and inclusive way. In this session, we are keen to share our approach, methodologies as well as challenges we are facing.
