New technologies and young talent

Written by ardyis-project



Young people in ACP countries are seldom attracted into agriculture. In organising its first ‘hackathon’, CTA offered young graduate computer programming development enthusiasts an opportunity to flaunt their talents and discover potential openings in the agricultural sector.



Today marks the International Girls in ICT Day! Initiated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in 2010, this day celebrates the interests and strengths of young girls and women in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and is a way to encourage them to choose a career in this area.

Background

In 2011, the International Communication Union (ITU) launched the “Girls and ICT Day” to celebrate girls’ interests and strengths in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), and to encourage them to choose a career in this area. Since then, it is being celebrated on the 4th Thursday in April, through different events organised globally. In this context and in the framework of its ARDYIS project, the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the African Youth Foundation (AYF) is organising an e-debate on Enhancing Young Women engagement in ICT and Agriculture.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the African Rural and Agricultural Credit Association (AFRACA), is organising its 2014 International Conference on Revolutionising finance for agri-value chains, “Fin4Ag” from 14-18 July 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya.
