Impacts of ICTs for Agricultural Development Interventions

Organised by: Farm Radio International (FRI)

ICTs are changing the face of agricultural extension. Agricultural development initiatives are increasingly relying on ICTs to enhance farmers' and communities' uptake of practices and innovations for improved food security. However, there are many questions concerning the impact and effectiveness of many of these initiatives. This session will interrogate the use of ICTs for agricultural development, and discuss best practices in the evaluation of impact, pro-poor ICT solutions, and knowledge uptake. Using a "world café" model, the session will begin with a short plenary where presenters will discuss issues related to sustainability, technology convergence, appropriate technology, and accessibility. We will then break into small groups where participants will move around the room to meet with each of the presenters in 15-minute cycles for more in-depth and hands-on discussions/demonstrations. Participants in this panel will share the lessons they have learned using mobile phone platforms, web 2.0, and "Rural Radio 2.0".
