Digital Extension Within Cocoa Sector Farmer Training
February 25, 2014
“We have to think hard about how to start taking advantage of the digital revolution that is multiplying the rate of agricultural innovation.” – 2012, Bill Gates at the “International Fund for Agricultural Development Governing Council.”
As Mr. Gates asserts, the digital revolution around the world provides opportunities to accelerate agricultural outcomes in rural areas. The World Cocoa Foundation and its partners are at the forefront of enabling digital technology information transfer to and from cocoa farmers to be a part of regular farmer training through the CocoaLink program.
Technology use requires strong partnerships and dedication to unleash its potential. CocoaLink Partners, with a lot of experience to share, provide their perspectives on opportunities, future visions, and lessons learned on digital mobile extension.
