The ZFU Ecofarmer Combo is a bundle of services developed by Econet, the largest Mobile Network Provider in Zimbabwe, and the Zimbabwe Farmers Union, with the support of Mercy Corps. It was one of the best promising practices submitted for the e-Agriculture “call for good and promising practices” earlier this year and therefore we have invited Trey Waters and Mildred Makore from Mercy Corps to a live e-Agriculture webinar to discuss this interesting ICT for agriculture innovation with the members of our Community of Practice.
Would you like to learn more about the ZFU Ecofarmer Combo and its impact? How to develop a successful cross-sector partnership in ICT4D? How to face the challenges such partnerships bring? And how to ensure the services meet the needs of the smallholder farmers? Join us for this live webinar with Mercy Corps – register here.
