This issue of the magazine has been developed, written and edited by the CTA interns, to bring a new angle to the discussion and to give a voice to young leaders in agriculture and rural development.
The complete issue of the magazine, will be available in French and English, and contains a discussion of the background information on these topics and the challenges around open data. The youth voice is strongly represented, in addition to information on GODAN, an agenda with upcoming events and other practical ICT tools for agriculture, such as Aquacrop, a FAO designed model that simulates yield response to water of herbaceous crops.
