From my point of view, access to relevant agricultural information technologies, for all food products and especially within the cassava value chain, can be a promising approach to improved food security; and bringing together practitioners, decision-makers, extensionists, youth and women, in a forum to find ways of improving the cassava value chain – as CTA and partners are doing with this meeting – is very important.
To amplify the deliberations of the Cassava Forum meeting, which will enable a larger audience to remotely participate in the discussions and spread the message of the outcomes , a group of CTA-sponsored young social reporters will be joining the 4-day conference to report the activities live.
