International Conference on 2018 IEEE Technological Innovations in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Agriculture and Rural Development
A majority of the poor in rural areas of the world primarily depend on the wages they earn through unskilled labour. In the event of inadequate labour demand or in the face of unpredictable crises like natural disaster or personal such as ill-health, their employment opportunities and livelihood are adversely affected. In this global scenario, the use of Information and Communication Technologies should solve the issues pertaining to poverty alleviation, unemployment, under employment, managing unskilled manual workers with short-term employment, making use of their available skill sets for irrigation, infrastructure building, reforestation, soil conservation, road construction etc.
This International conference will present various innovative ideas on how to carry out income transfer to poor households during critical times through the use of ICT for Agriculture and Rural Development.
