Please Register Now: ICTforAg 2018 – New Technology for Smallholder Farmers

By Wayan Vota on March 14, 2018

Please sign up to present or register to attend ICTforAg 2018 on June 14th, at FHI 360 in Washington, DC

This one-day conference will build on ICTforAg 2015, 2016, and 2017, bringing together 300 thought leaders and decision-makers in agriculture and technology from the international development community and the private sector.

With your community-driven sessions, we will examine how new innovations can empower smallholder farmers, and the communities that support them, through information and communication technologies (ICT).

Our Focus

At ICTforAg 2018, we’ll seek to find answers to the real challenges that smallholder farmers and agriculture value chain stakeholders face in three focus areas:

  • Which Market Systems improve farmer livelihoods?
  • How can Technological Innovation change farming outcomes?
  • Where can Crisis Response processes and tools increase farmer resilience?

Like previous conferences, ICTforAg 2018 will be a community-driven event. Please submit your ideas for presentations and session topics in one of the three areas listed above.

Session Submission Deadline: April 13, 2018

Presenters and session leads will play a central role in developing the event and have their ticket costs refunded. We can even offer travel stipends for select participants implementing ICTforAg activities in developing countries.

Register Now

Please sign up to present or register to attend ICTforAg 2018 to examine these trends with an exciting mix of educational keynotes, lightning talks, and group breakouts, including an evening reception to foster needed networking across sectors.

We are charging a modest fee to better allocate seats and we expect to sell out quickly again this year, so buy your tickets or demo tables now.

ICTforAg is supported by Abt Associates, DAI, FHI 360, and RTI International.
