Members of the two SNRDs will share their experiences with ICT4Ag — from Africa to Asia and vice versa!

SNRD Africa’s ICT4Ag Community of Practice joins up with SNRD Asia to exchange on how African and Asian farmers can easily access information using latest information and communication technology for agriculture.

Today’s fast-evolving ICT represents a tremendous opportunity for rural populations to improve productivity, to enhance food and nutrition security, to access markets, and to find employment in a revitalized sector  (World Bank 2017, ICT in Agriculture, Handbook).

SNRD Africa recently released a new study on the use of ICT in agriculture. It covers 52 ICT4Ag solutions which have been developed for 29 GIZ projects, operating in 34 countries on both continents.

In order to contribute to cross-boundary exchange between the two networks, the upcoming webinar will have a closer look at a particular ICT4Ag solution that has been applied in India — comparing it to similar implementation in Africa. Lessons-learnt will also draw from specific failures on both continents!

Is this relevant to you?

The webinar is designed for project staff of agricultural and rural development projects from both SNRDs who are interested in sharing their ICT4Ag-related experiences with colleagues in other parts of the world.

What will be your takeaway?

You will learn how to use ICT4Ag to improve farmers’ climate resilience, provide them with access to information, extension services and finance in two very different contexts.

The presenters

The discussion will be led by Florian Moder, who has gained considerable insights during the setup of the Network for Information on Climate (Ex) Change (NICE+) in India. Colleagues from SNRD Africa with know-how in providing farmers with extension services and finance will provide much more than a sounding board.
