Limited Capacity seats available

Whether we’re engaging with farmers, partners, colleagues, or beyond to implement an agricultural initiative with an ICT component, one thing remains true: processes - or lack thereof - can make or break a project. Using Oxfam project examples from Cambodia, Bangladesh, and Senegal, we will discuss processes that have proven effective in selecting appropriate technologies; building bridges between private companies, universities, and community-based organizations; and strengthening staff capacity to support ICT in Ag interventions.

Join Oxfam for an interactive session to dig deeper into processes that ensure local ownership and a gender lens in tech usage, and collaborative partnerships for a successful scale-out of a pilot. Attendees will explore what processes matter in their context and participate in hands-on activities with their peers to gain insights that can push their ICT in Ag projects to the next level.
