ICTs for Agriculture

The rapid technological changes taking place, especially in the areas of the Internet, mobile and data applications, create an enormous opportunity for growth in the agricultural sector.

OUR APPROACH

ICTs play an important role in enabling small farmers to engage in value chains. CTA will help stakeholder groups to adopt proper ICTs, and help entrepreneurs, especially youth, to develop viable businesses based on ICTs for agriculture.

CTA will leverage its experience in ICTs to support the development of viable business models of ICTs for agriculture to boost extension and advisory services in their provision of actionable knowledge.

CTA activities will range from helping value-chain stakeholders to build networks for information exchange and for policy advocacy, to the organisation of ICT interventions to solve specific challenges in value-chain and inclusive policy processes.
