Only connect? Listen to farmer needs to give them the right ICTs
You must have Flash installed to view this content.
For Hilda Munuya (Knowledge Trends Ltd.) the key issue is in the notion of appropriate technology, or blend of technologies, that farmers will be able to adopt. There's a big difference between younger and older generations, in terms of literacy and exposure to ICTs. To help the farmers, it's important to listen to them and find out what they think is appropriate. Mobile phones and FM radios broadcasting in local languages are clear examples of this.
