Mobile Applications for Agriculture and Rural Development

This webpage provides information sheets on 92 mobile applications that are being used for agriculture and rural development (ARD) across the world. These information sheets are collected as part of a comprehensive study by the World Bank’s ICT Sector Unit on this topic, and the link to the report will be provided shortly. They are organized by project name and ARD sub-sectors for convenience of access. We hope these information sheets will be useful for ARD practitioners and policy makers, and please contact Marta Priftis (mpriftis@worldbank.org) or Siou Chew Kuek (skuek@worldbank.org) if you have any questions or comments.
