i think ore efforts needs to be done to gain access to open data by our government, in cameroon especially,in many offices you can hardly see coherent documents on archives concerning past information and data of land use systems, land tenure or agriculture. most information are still old and have not been digitally preserves or updated. there are alot of missing files due to lack of preservation , despite thse i think the government is doing her best to succeed in this by vreating achive centeres and digital libraries in universities which just need now but management and proper professional approach. i did my research  during mastersa and it was difficult for my university library to even offer me codes for agora where i can download and read credible journals in my field of study. i think more needs to be done

Farming in Africa be it any form of agriculture is a way of life for most peasants and poor homes to survive. Most at time Peasants have little or no knowledge of ict talk less of reading and writing. All they know is to do tranditional and informal agricultural practices which have repeatedly been practice since historic times ininherited from their fore fathers with no modification. This method does no depend on data or quest for improvement.it is all about hand to mouth in families. ict can only play a great role here if the people and rural population concerned are given opportunities for trainings and short educational courses using reliable NGOs and donor agencies whose main objectives are truly clear and feasible.
