What impact do ICT-in-agriculture projects have on rural resilience?


A new open-access paper analyses 45 ICT4Ag cases from Africa and Asia.  It finds an uneven impact: household resilience is built far more than community resilience, and equality is undermined almost as much as strengthened.


A new conceptual model is developed to explain the uneven impact of ICTs on rural resilience.  Policy and practice recommendations and a future research agenda are set out.


Do please pass on to relevant colleagues.


With thanks
