ICT4Farmers Programme Launched

ICT4Farmers Programme Launched

Wednesday, November 25, 2020; This project that seeks to enhance the adoption of ICT to improve the content and digital skills for smallholder farmers in Uganda has been launched.

The project is implemented by Uganda National Farmers Federation (UNFFE) in collaboration with Eight Tech Consults and supported by Uganda Communications Commission (UCC).

UCC through UCUSAF launched a call for business plan proposals to establish a collaboration on the implementation of critical activities under a general thematic area of enhancing ICT adoption in agriculture among smallholder farmers. The findings mostly informed the call for proposals of a study, which was conducted by the UCC in 2019 on “the state of ICT4Agric Innovations in Uganda”.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to accelerated uptake of ICT4Agric Innovations by various actors, especially smallholder farmers in a number of value chains covering crops, animals and fisheries.
