CTA to host debate lab on women's access to ICT's for agriculture at the European Development Days 2018

Digital innovations and the opportunities they offer to women in agriculture have the ability to transform every link in the agriculture value chain. However, despite the advancements in technology and digitalisation, the gender gaps continue to widen. Women are 14% less likely than men to own a mobile phone and 25 % fewer women and girls use the internet. This means female farmers, particularly in rural areas, often experience difficulties accessing relevant information, financial products and services and markets. They are also often do not participate in relevant policy-making. By supporting women’s access to ICT’s for agriculture, CTA helps to close the gender gap and improve livelihoods. As part of the European Development Days, on Tuesday 5 June 2018 CTA with partners will host a debate lab titled: Going Digital: Sustainable development in agriculture for women – to discuss digitalisation challenges and opportunities for women and by women in agriculture and how they can be leveraged and sustained for improved livelihoods and incomes.
