Making ICTs work for farmers: Seven Case studies

ICTs have a huge potential in imporving the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the developing world, especially in the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP).

But some obstacles remain, such as poor network connectivity in rural areas, non-existing information, or lack of technology knowledge by potential users.
