Apps4Ag database and framework 


This activity involves the development of a comprehensive, up-to-date, and responsive Apps4Ag database to better support access to, and uptake of ICTs (including mobile applications) by individuals and institutions involved in agricultural value chain development.

Specific objectives include:

  • Developing a framework for assessing the usability and functionality of these applications for agricultural value chain development.
  • Collating and documenting ICT applications for agriculture through an Apps4Ag database.
  • Mapping the applications along an agricultural value chain framework to facilitate use by value chain actors.
  • Pilot testing the framework on selected applications in selected geographic regions and building a community of practice around Apps4Ag.

Using the framework to support up-scaling of ICT4Ag initiatives with support from the community of practice for evaluation of the applications.
