Rwanda scales up efforts to promote agri-tech inclusion

As the world celebrates International Women’s Day, it is worth reflecting on the crucial role that women play in agriculture and the critical need for technology inclusion to promote gender equality in the sector.

With this year’s theme, “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality,” there is a renewed focus on the barriers that women face in accessing digital technologies and the impact it has on their productivity and livelihoods.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources has a digital office that is strengthening data systems to, among others, ensure that women are not sidelined in the agri-tech revolution, according to Martine Nezerwa, the Chief Digital Officer for agriculture in the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources.

“The digital office is focusing on strengthening data systems as the key to inclusive and equitable service delivery by supporting disaggregation of data not only by gender but also by socio-economic demographics, strengthening equity and equality in agricultural services delivery,” said Nezerwa.
