Information and Communication Technologies for Agriculture

The Information and Communication Technologies for Agriculture e-Sourcebook is being designed as an e-publication to maximize its outreach, with the intent of maintaining it as a living updatable document following its release in Autumn 2011.

Information and Communication Technologies for Agriculture

The Information and Communication Technologies for Agriculture e-Sourcebook describes a wide variety of ICT innovations and discusses the potential they carry for stakeholders engaged in agricultural development.

The overarching challenge for agriculture in the international development community is to make the sector fulfill its potential as an engine for a certain kind of economic growth—poverty-reducing economic growth.

The e-Sourcebook therefore focuses on support to poor smallholder farmers and the intermediate institutions that serve them, and within this classification of producers, on female farmers in addition to women who are otherwise employed in rural nonfarm economies.
