A special online conference on e-Agriculture: looking back and moving forward is starting on November 25th

To participate you need to be registered on the e-Agriculture Community platform. Registration is simple at

Over the last several years, there has been significant progress in improving communication and decision making in rural areas through the application of new technologies. Multi-stakeholder partnerships have formed, and time and money have been invested. Now more than ever there is a need to reflect on experiences and strategize for the future.

In 2014 and 2015 reviews of successes and failures in improving agricultural and rural development with ICT will be part of the WSIS+10 events and the MDG review. Multiple local, national and regional events will provide inputs. The e-Agriculture Community has been invited to make its own inputs, and Grameen Foundation has kindly offered to lead this activity.
Join the discussion from 25 November through 6 December in this important online discussion. Share your experiences and interact with our distinguished panel of Subject Matter Experts:

Md. Shahid Uddin Akbar, CEO, Bangladesh Institute of ICT for Development
