Farmers have a right to accessible, reliable gender-responsive information and communication services — and that in the language they speak. Current investment in does not reflect the value provided by small-scale farmers to society, economy and the environment in sub-Saharan Africa. Male and female small-scale farmers currently have severely limited access to the agricultural advisory services they need to continually improve their livelihoods, and respond to issues such as COVID-19.
Access to accurate, locally-relevant information allows people to make the best decision about improving their own lives. Especially for marginalised women and youth, using accessible channels and cost-effective methods is key. For rural Africa today, this means radio and mobile phones. Radio, well established, reaches 80% of African households. Quality interactive radio with mobile tech is the most impactful way to provide quality extension services for agricultural development & public health.
