It is estimated that, over the next thirty years, developing countries will need an additional 120 million hectares of crops to meet the needs of the population. Telefónica is aware of this reality and, in 2018, launched innovation, data digitisation and analysis initiatives in the agricultural sector to boost the development of agriculture, food security and nutrition. One of these initiatives is the water efficiency pilots based on "Smart Agro" technology that have been implemented in several Latin American countries, such as the case of Peru described in this document.
