The International Fund for Agricultural Development (
IFAD) is organising a meeting on "ICT use to attract Young to a profitable agriculture" on 25th September 2014 in Rome, Italy.

Some of the key questions to be addressed during the meeting are:

How can we use ICTs to attract young people to farming? What impact does the use of ICTs have on young rural people and their communities? How can access to ICTs change the image of farming and improve the social status of young people? What are the different services offered by ICTs to and by young farmers and service providers?

To share their experiences on this subject, the International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) have been invited to make a presentation. The presentations will be followed by a technical discussion to improve a concept note drafted by IICD.
