I am Simon Wandila from Zambia, one of the Social Reporters who attended last November 2013 ICT4Ag conference in Kigali, Rwanda. I thought it necessary to share my experience and what ensued from that event.

Last month, we launched a call for social reporters to cover the Fin4Ag International conference that will take place in Nairobi from 14 - 18 July 2014. 694 applications were received in English and French and after processing and evaluating them, 15 reporters have been selected for the on-site team and over 300 reporters will form part of the larger online team.

Join us for the Next Generation of Hunger Fighters Speakers Series organised by the Global Youth Innovation Network (GYIN) and the Africa agribusiness Magazine (AAM) on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. The theme for this speaker series is "What Policies Should Government, Non-profits and Corporations Develop to Involve More Youths in Agribusiness?”

Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition

The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition is an exciting new opportunity to develop your innovative ideas and projects to create positive change in your community and the world. With support and feedback from peers around the world, you can turn your passion for a better world into reality.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s fastest growing population and also the youngest. This is a huge opportunity for West Africa as young people bring energy, vivacity, and innovation into the work force and can consequently have a transformative impact on economic growth and social development. The agricultural sector plays a key role in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and represents up to 35% of the region’s Gross Domestic Product.  It is currently the employer of most of West Africans with 60% of the active population engaged in this sector.

Agriculture players who are attending the ICT4ag conference 2013 in Kigali are convinced that ICT-enabled projects being developed by young people can lead to the intended agricultural transformation in due time.
