Eastern Corridor Agro-Information Centre ECAMIC: A three year learning process

This project learning brief describes the lessons learned from SEND Ghana's ECAMIC project, which used a broad range of ICTs to promote market access and equity for farming communities in the Eastern Corridor of the Northern Region of Ghana. The project experimented with both ‘high-end’ and ‘low-end’ ICT resources - from Internet, websites and mobile phones to community notice boards (chalkboards) and public-address systems. It explored what is required to enable rural farming communities to make effective use of the ESOKO (then TradeNet) market price service.
