What is ARDYIS?

ARDYIS is a framework of actions which aims to raise the capacity and opportunities of youth in agriculture through ICTs in ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific).

Its key activities include the Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) and the AgriHack Talent initiative.

In the framework of the Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2016 (CWA2016), the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA) through the Intra-ACP Agricultural Policy Programme (Intra-ACP APP) will be organising an onsite social reporting activity. The event will be held from 24th to 28th October 2016 in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.

Il s’est tenu à Kinshasa, du 29 février au 04 mars 2016, un atelier sur “Opportunité d'apprentissage du Web 2.0 et des Médias Sociaux (web2fordev)”. Organisé par le Centre technique de coopération agricole et rurale ACP-UE (CTA) et l’Institut international d'agriculture tropicale (IITA) en République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), cet atelier était une opportunité pour initier quelques agripreneurs et autres participants à une sélection d’applications du Web 2.0 et apprendre à les utiliser de manière pratique et participative. Les participants, parmi lesquels nous trouvons quelques agripreneurs, ont eu l’opportunité de suivre et de prendre part à la pratique de ces applications innovantes.
