Submit Session & Speaker Ideas by May 1st

Together, we’ll explore how data, new technologies and innovation are remaking food & water systems and value chains around the world, and how international development organizations can leverage these changes to accelerate impact.

ICTforAg 2019 Conference

ICTforAg 2019 will be a different event than previous ICTforAg conferences.

Sponsored by Feed the Future, ICTforAg 2019 will be a smaller, more interactive event, focused on technical dialogue and networking. In particular, we’ll explore:

  • What’s new in digital for resilience and food security (D4RFS)?
  • How could Digital Farmer Profiles fundamentally reshape food security, resilience and nutrition?
  • Which enabling environment factors support digital solutions for food security?
  • When can we take advantage of preexisting and established technologies?
  • What you need to know about changes in agricultural extension, farm management, market access and financial inclusion;
  • Where can international development drive business model innovations in new agricultural technologies?
  • Who is investing in new AgTech solutions and what are they learning?

…and other key topics that donors, implementing partners, the private sector, farmers, and others will find directly applicable to their work.
