The ICT for Agriculture Conference (Kigali, Rwanda, Nov 4-8 2013), described here - http://www.comminit.com/global/event/ict-agriculture-conference-nov-4-8-2013 - offered participants the opportunity to discover opportunities and information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the field of agriculture. It was co-hosted by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) and the Rwandan Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources (MINAGRI). More details about what transpired are available on the CTA website, here: https://www.comminit.com/clickthru/17063e8a9443b6abb4ef1f23738e66a9?node=
Were you there? If so, what was your experience? It would be great to hear reflections in this forum.
I also wanted to call your attention to the fact that an upcoming special issue of The CI's e-magazine, The Drum Beat, will be highlighting contributions from journalists who attended the conference, such as Arison Tamfu's piece "Harvesting from ict4ag Conference"
Please look out for this Drum Beat issue, which - if you do not already subscribe to receive it via email - will be found here - http://www.comminit.com/global/newsletters/287 - in the coming months. (If you wish to subscribe, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com ).
