1. Selon le facilitateur, monsieur Barthélemy Boika Mahambi, la Modélisation Participative en 3 Dimensions (MP3D) s’est révélée être un impressionnant outil de gouvernance participative, de transparence et d’implication communautaire dans la capture et la gestion des données géo spatiales, moteur de prise de conscience et de confiance pour la sécurisation foncière, la planification et la gestion durable des ressources en eau afin d’améliorer la productivité agricole dans le bassin versant d’Avaratrambolo, Madagascar.

    La maquette s’est avérée séduisante comme support visuel : elle a permis aux communautés de faire prévaloir leur savoir géographique, tout en rapprochant les parties prenantes dans un dialogue multi-acteurs constructif.

  2. In 2013, the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources (MINAGRI) and the support of the Ministry of Youth and ICT (MYICT) of Rwanda, organised a hackathon focused on agriculture. It was held in the framework of the international ICT4Ag Conference initiated by CTA. The activity was not a traditional hackathon. Its objectives were to showcase the potentials of ICT applications in agriculture at the ICT4Ag conference and to support the development of ICT innovations and entrepreneurship in agriculture by young people. It took the form of a regional tournament. The video presents the various activities held at the Finals of the AgriHack Championship, including the pitching session of young developers and the prize giving ceremony.

    The preliminary phase were held before the ICT4Ag Conference and the finals took place during the conference in Kigali. In order to ensure that the applications developed meet the needs of those in agriculture in East Africa, and that the developers have the opportunity further to refine and launch their applications after the event, CTA involved, from the start, key stakeholders, including ICT hubs and ministries from East Africa, as well other international government and non-governmental institutions (such as the Rwandese ministries of Agriculture and the one in charge of youth and ICTs, AGRA, Microsoft 4Afrika). Winners of the hackathon have been incubated for several months at the event of the events.

    This pilot experience will be replicated in other regions.

  4. Among the many bus stations of N’djamena the capital city of Chad, travellers coming from the countryside know where to unpack their concerns. The path of Aladji Ibrahim leads to AFPAT, an organisation which represents the rights of Indigenous Peoples, in this case the Bororo herders. Here is where the story starts, a deeply touching one. A story centred around climate change adaptation, where the manufacturing and use of a 3 dimensional model helps bridging the gap between traditions and modernism, local producers and government officials, village elders and scientists, local communities and public powerhouses. Last but not least this film documents how participatory three-dimensional mapping (P3DM) can facilitate the management and mitigation of conflicts over shared natural resources. It shows also that P3DM can support the promotion of human rights and represent a formidable medium for facilitating dialogue among development partners.
