WSIS 2016: Plug & Play session on Showcasing ICT Innovations for Sustainable Agri-Food Systems

WSIS 2016: Plug & Play session on Showcasing ICT Innovations for Sustainable Agri-Food Systems

Aperçu de l'événement

CTA, in collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), will organise a Plug and Play event in the framework of which various agricultural mobile applications and devices will be showcased. The event will take place at the ITU premises in Geneva, Switzerland, on 5 May 2016 between 09:00 and 12:00.

These applications and products have been developed and are operated by young entrepreneurs from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and the United States. Some of the applications have been developed through hackathons and incubations organised by the project “Agricultural, Rural Development and Youth in the Information Society” (ARDYIS) which won the 2015 WSIS Forum Prize in the e-agriculture category. The applications to be demonstrated at WSIS facilitate access to agricultural finance, agricultural market, climate smart information, pest management, nutrition, and fighting food waste. Some of these apps are already impacting lives of thousands of farmers in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia.
