A special section of eLearning Africa will be devoted to learning and training in one of the most important sectors of the African economy – agriculture. Farming and food production currently employ over 40 per cent of the continent’s workforce, more than 70 per cent of whom are women.
How can Africa feed its growing population? What are the opportunities for African farmers and food producers? What skills do they need and how can they access them? How can African producers maintain and improve food quality? How can ICTs help to preserve and share traditional knowledge and skills?
These and a host of other important questions will be discussed in a range of sessions and workshops as part of the eLearning Africa 2019 Agriculture Track. Key themes and topics for discussion will include:
B: Agriculture training
C: The role of ICTs in improving training, knowledge management and access
E: Protecting the environment

“The conference has been very interesting. It has brought together diverse views of how we can use ICT to improve learning in West Africa and Africa as a whole. The eLearning Africa conference has been very helpful, in that we have been able to share ideas of how we can improve our various systems of government and eLearning in our countries. A very good experience!”
