Abstract

This chapter analyzes the role of ICTs in a sustainable governance model as fundamental tools to manage the integrated system “Environment, Agriculture and Health”. Food production can determine a negative impact on the environment that then reverberates on the human health: intensive agricultural practices and farming are the principals responsible of the global emissions of greenhouses gases that, causing climate change, can impact human health. The study produced a survey with the purpose of appraising firms’ propensity to use ICTs tools in order to enhance their strategies on climate change and environmental pollution and to work, through sustainable communication, towards an integrated system.
