Digital Skills

Enhancing farmers' digital skills

Spearheaded by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), this initiative aims to enhance agribusiness development and foster economic growth by providing essential digital tools and knowledge to farmers.

The Sepik region, renowned for its fertile lands and vibrant farming communities, has faced challenges due to limited access to digital resources and skills. In response, the EU-STREIT PNG Programme, under the ITU's guidance, is bridging the digital divide by empowering lead farmers with various aspects of digital literacy.

Advancing ICT in Agriculture

In this context, Information Communication Technology (ICTs) offer enormous opportunities for enhanced agricultural innovation for food security, income, and economic growth.

Empowering Community Agri Coaches

The training was facilitated by the EU Funded UN Joint STREIT Programme in a bid to strengthen community-embedded capacities in digital skills, digital agriculture, and financial inclusion in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea. The training was aimed at building trainees' capacities as future Trainers of Trainers (ToTs) or Coaches.
