|Samenvatting||IICD’s agricultural livelihoods sector projects are aimed at improving the incomes of small-scale farmers and improving levels of efficiency in the agricultural sector, using ICT. This sector is the largest focus for IICD, with a total of 65 projects, programmes and policies. Across the nine countries in which IICD is active, the projects have so far reached approximately 180,000 active users and no fewer than 2,500,000 direct and indirect beneficiaries. The users primarily include small farmers and farming associations, traders and trade organizations and informal small and medium-sized businesses. The ICT users are reached through a combination of information centres with internet access, mobile services, rural radio and television and voice radio.|
