ICT training needs in East and Central Africa

The ASARECA Regional Agricultural Information Network just published the report of its assessment of ICT/ICM (information and communication management) capacities and related training needs in the region. The authors found a general lack of institutional ICT/ICM policies which, in turn, affect human resource policies, commitment to ICT and ICM by managers - including execution of projects, establishment and management of units, and status of ICT/ICM staff. These deficiencies lead to a wide diversity of training needs - fortunately, it seems that most training needs could be satisfied with resources available locally, in-house, in the country, or in the ASARECA sub-region.
