What is the ARDYIS Project?

The purpose of ARDYIS is to raise youth awareness and capacity on agricultural and rural development issues in ACP countries through ICTs. More specifically, it will strengthen the capacities of the youth on ICTs for development issues, particularly in the agricultural and rural sector and contribute to sensitizing youth on the questions related to agriculture and rural development in ACP countries. It is a framework for actions that will contribute to the promotion of opportunities for youth in ACP countries in the sectors of agriculture, rural development and information and communication technology.

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.

Young people are at the forefront when it comes to ICT innovation for agriculture. With substantial evidence that new ICTs, in particular the mobile communication, empower knowledge exchange and offer new tools that improve trade in the agricultural sector, there would seem to be unlimited opportunities for young entrepreneurs.
