In honor of World Food Day, we’ve put together a list of how African developers, governments, and organizations operating in Africa are harnessing mobile technology to improve agricultural practices. Private companies, budding IT entrepreneurs, NGOs, as well as governments are all involved in a variety of mobile phone-based products, services, and applications aimed at boosting small-scale agriculture.

NWP Annotation Conserving Tropical Biodiversity amid Weak Institutions by Jon Anderson — last modified Feb 19, 2013 09:49 AM
The authors believe that the community based model of NRM, as a reaction to the failed top down (central government) model, needs reconsideration.

The article makes 4 claims: 1) the current approach to NRM overspmphsizes the community; 2) economic and biophysical scale issues argue for the involvement of multiple organizations; 3) there are weak institutions at all levels; and 4) support is needed from international and national actors. The article brings up the useful notions of opportunity costs, transaction costs and comparative advantage.
