In this section

The emergence of global food chains, where the central square is now up to consumers and businesses, as well as new local and regional markets, opened up prospects for a number of producers, but also created new difficulties for many others, particularly the poorest and most marginalized. In many countries, migration to cities is reflected both by a feminization of the rural economy and growth of urban agriculture.

These factors undoubtedly herald major changes for agriculture and for farmers in developing countries: to help people cope with new developments including Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). In this context, it comes to identifying innovative tools to facilitate communication, adapted to a context where the target populations are totally or partially illiterate.
