AgInfo innovation and communication among African farmers

A project to examine the state of local content in developing countries is starting to attract examples and stories from Africa.

"Rural people in Africa have amazing knowledge and wisdom, often expressed through proverbs, idioms, song, pottery and poetry, among other methods."

"The big question again is do we still need to be investing in tools, approaches, systems that facilitate vertical flow of information from research to farmers or we need to look for, and develop systems that facilitate horizontal communication among these farmers to be able to solve their problems?"

These contributions by James Nguo, Charles Dhewa, and Ben Kwasi Addom highlight some of the opportunities and challenges rural communities have in creating and exchanging 'their'knowledge and information.
