51158-001: Leveraging Information and Communication Technology for Irrigated Agricultural Information | Asian Development Bank

Indonesia: Leveraging Information and Communication Technology for Irrigated Agricultural Information

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51158-001 Status: Active

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will improve delivery of information to farmers to help enhance their livelihoods. The TA will strengthen the existing use of information communication technology (ICT), to deliver low cost, timely and actionable extension information to the smallholder farmers specific to their needs to increase their ability to improve yields. The TA builds on and strengthens the outcomes of the loan - Integrated Participatory Development and Management of Irrigation Program (IPDMIP), to maximize the investments on infrastructure development, value chain services and improving the delivery of extension information to farmers and building capacity of extension workers. TA locations will overlap with IPDMIP in 3 districts to identify locations, crops and strategic value chains which have high potential for improved production, increased profitability and higher income for smallholders.
