On rapporte qu'Albert Einstein aurait dit : « Je ne pense jamais au futur – il vient bien assez tôt. » Comme il avait raison !
Il ne fait aucun doute que le pouvoir transformatif des TIC nous fait vivre un développement exponentiel !
Tentez l'aventure et embarquez-vous pour l'an 2025 de la révolution @gricole.
Albert Einstein is quoted having said: “I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.” How true he was!
There is no doubt that the transformative power of ICTs makes us live in exponential times !
Let’s give it a try, and jump to year 2025 of the @gricultural revolution.
We increasingly hear about innovation taking place in Africa and other countries in the South. ICTs appears to be in the driving seat. Do these testimonies reflect localised initiatives or are there any significant trends at national and continental level? Are we at the edge of a second agricultural revolution?
Let's see what the numbers are telling us ....
In this week’s CTA Brussels video interview, Kalilou Sylla, Executive Secretary, ROPPA, West Africa, tells us more about the Maputo Declaration on Agriculture and Food Security and the 10 percent national budget allocation to agriculture development.
Sylla gives an update about the implementation and progress of Maputo commitments. He says we witness a clear change in West African agriculture, but we are still waiting to see the impact on the ground. He states that while the commitment to allocate at least 10 percent of national budgetary resources to agriculture and rural development policy implementation is actually met by several country, in many cases the major part of the funding comes from external donors.
On the 2nd October 2013, Kalilou Sylla held a presentation on “the progress of Maputo commitments towards agriculture in West Africa” as part of the Brussels Briefing on the ‘Drivers of success for agricultural transformation in Africa’ organized by CTA Brussels at the Borschette Congress Center in Brussels.
