Gender, ICTS and rural livelihoods: special online forum 5-16 July

Join e-Agriculture and GenARDIS* in a special online forum in English that will explore some of the challenges that people and projects face when implementing projects aimed at empowering women and ICTs in rural livelihoods. The forum will look at what has worked, what has not worked, and good practices, as well as the critical area of capacity building and what can be done to empower women and men in playing a more vital role in ICTs for agriculture and rural development. Furthermore, the Forum aims to explore evaluation and will facilitate discussion on how we produce evidence that donors need to take the importance of women in rural ICTs seriously. The forum will be hosted entirely online with the e-Agriculture Community platform at
