This showcase evening will commence with the case “Future of Technology in Rural Agriculture” showing interesting projects and initiatives that are uplifting the lives of thousands of smallholder farmers, followed by ample time for discussion and the exchange of ideas and networking.
Agriculture is at the center of livelihoods for the majority of people in developing countries. Most cultivate on less than 2 hectares of land and earn less than $2 a day, as they struggle to access the formal food economy and remain trapped in a cycle of poverty. In rural areas with poor infrastructure the pervasive presence of mobile technology can play a pivotal role in uplifting the lives of smallholder farmers, enabling them to engage with large buyers and their multinational value chains with greater efficiency and transparency.
Attending “Future of Technology in Rural Agriculture” will let you explore how the use of mobile technology can contribute to the development of inclusive and ethical agricultural value chains.
