The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation are offering an online course on networking in support of development. The course will cover how different information and communication technologies (ICTs) in a country – local, national, and international – fit together to provide a means of communication, and the issues that affect each level. The course is free and offered to members of the e-agriculture.org community in Africa who are currently, or would like to be, involved in the development and use of ICTs to support existing communications traditions and networks, especially in rural areas. The course runs from May 6-9, 2008, and applications are due by April 23, 2008. For more details, visit: www.e-agriculture.org.
