ICT Update magazine is preparing an issue that will focus on Women and ICTs and they would like to hear from anyone working on agricultural or rural development projects that emphasize the role and position of women in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, where ICTs (mobile phones, computers, GIS, email, Internet, radio, TV, etc) are used to improve employment opportunities or to encourage an interest in traditional agricultural practices.

 ICT Update magazine is looking for projects that focus on empowerment, female rural entrepreneurship or capacity building. If someone is involved in such a project then they have to get in touch with brief details on the technology they use, how women are involved, and how it contributes to rural development in ACP countries. They can then send an article outline and list of questions to cover in the article, or organize a time for a telephone interview.
