ICTforAg 2019: Advancing resilience, nutrition, and water access in a digital world

Event Date: 
Jun 05, 2019
9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT
Feed the Future, ICTforAg


Join global leaders for a 1-day conference exploring the future of agriculture, food security, resilient populations and technology, on June 5, 2019 in Washington, DC. Together, we’ll explore how data, new technologies and innovation are remaking food & water systems and value chains around the world, and how international development organizations can leverage these changes to accelerate impact. Submit session & speaker ideas here by May 1st

Sponsored by Feed the Future, ICTforAg 2019 will be a smaller, more interactive event, focused on technical dialogue and networking. In particular, we’ll explore:

  • What’s new in digital for resilience and food security (D4RFS);
  • How Digital Farmer Profiles might fundamentally reshape food security, resilience and nutrition;
  • What you need to know about changes in agricultural extension, farm management, market access and financial inclusion;
  • How international development can drive investment and business model innovations in new agricultural technologies around the globe;

…and other key topics that donors, implementing partners, the private sector, farmers, and others will find directly applicable to their work. 

Registration details will follow soon, but for the moment, we are seeking leading thinkers and practitioners across the sector. If you have an idea for a speaker (including yourself), panel session or lightning talk, submit it here by 6 PM EST on Wednesday May 1st to be considered for the final agenda.

Seating will be limited as we expect a high level of interest, and available spots will be assigned via lottery. Another email will follow with registration details as they become available. If you received this email as a forward, sign up for this email list to know when registration starts here. This conference will be free for attendees. Questions? Contact us here.
