Information and Communication Technologies: 10 keys to a more productive agriculture

Many conferences on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) discuss a wide range of policy issues. They address issues such as, for example, developing better partnerships to improve the impact of ICTs in agriculture and strengthening the role of young men and women in ICT initiatives.
