Please Register Now: ICTforAg 2017 is Just 6 Weeks Away

By Wayan Vota on May 11, 2017

Please register to attend ICTforAg 2017 on June 23rd, at FHI 360 in Washington, DC.

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

With community-driven sessions featuring staff from USAID, AGRA, CIAT, Cargill, FAO, MCC, and a bevy of implementing organizations, we will examine how new innovations can empower smallholder farmers, and the communities that support them, through information and communication technologies.

We’ll seek to find answers to the real challenges that smallholder farmers and agriculture value chain stakeholders face in four focus areas:

  1. Where are Digital Financial Services improving farmer finances?
  2. How can Digital Extension Services succeed where analog versions have failed?
  3. What does Private Sector Partnerships – Version 2.0 look like?
  4. Where is Climate Smart Agriculture having impact in mitigating increased variability?

We’ll take a particular interest in new ICT solutions that can boost the productivity of both smallholder farmers and agricultural value chains, including 10 innovative vendor demonstrations, but we’ll be sure to keep the discussion inclusive of all possible ICTs, including traditional media platforms, agribusiness IT systems, and existing government support systems.

Please register now to attend ICTforAg 2017 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.
