Empowering the poor through sustainable technology solutions

In March 2011,Catholic relief Services organized its third ICT4D event (following conferences in Nairobi in March 2010 and Washington, DC, in September 2010).

The first part of the program was a series of presentations (all online!) that exemplfy the ways that ICTs are being used to reach poor people (including in agriculture).

Some of the presentations include:
  • Mobile Money Transactions and Automating Vouchers for Food Delivery
  • Regional Agricultural Input Market Information Service
  • Market on Your Mobile
  • Last Mile Mobile Solution
  • Agricultural MIS Value Chain Tool for Smallholders
The second part examined ways that CRSA uses ICTs in its operations, with experiences shared ranging from GIS to flip cameras.
